Elisabeth Schober, anthropologist
I am a social anthropologist based at the University of Oslo. My research and teaching interests are in maritime logistics and ship-building, gender and sexuality, and economic globalization. My primary regional focus is South Korea, but I have also undertaken fieldwork in the Philippines and in various locations in Europe. I have written and co-edited several books, most recently "Base Encounters. The US Armed Forces in South Korea
" (Pluto Press, 2016). I am currently the Principal Investigator at "Life Cycle of Container ships"
- a research project funded under the FRIPRO-"Young Research Talent"-Scheme of the Norwegian Research Council. I also lead "PORTS
" - a project funded by the European Research Council (ERC) under grant agreement number 851132.See more
