Science and Technology Studies, knowledge practices of sustainable urban planning, situated knowledge, transportation planning practices, electric vehicle usage. In my Ph.D. project, I am exploring learning and knowledge practices of sustainable city and transportation planning in Norway.
In my Ph.D, I am exploring knowledge and learning practices of sustainable city and transportation planning in Norway in order to describe what types of knowledge, how knowledge is produced, translated, and used among planners in the making of future cities and transportation systems. There are two case studies in my project; the first focuses upon the urban collaboration program "Cities of the future," which ran from 2008-2014 in Norway, and in the second, I pay attention to planners in the Norwegian cities of Bergen and Trondheim working with environmental friendly transportation. My dissertation is based on articles. Drawing on theories and methods from STS, I explore cities as assemblages of socio-technical imaginaries, the translocal practices of urban sustainability, and the measuring of "the sustainable city."
