Siri Gerrard is a professor emerita at the University of Tromsø, Norway, where she is affiliated with the Centre of Women and Gender Research, and the Department of Sociology, Political Science and Planning. Her research areas include women and gender in fishery politics, fishery work, and fishing communities in North Norway. Earlier she also worked in Tanzania, Cameroon and Uganda. Gender and feminist theory of science has also been a field of interest.
Recent collaborative projects include: Sustainable Coastal Cultures, Local Communities and Resource Management in a Gender Perspective (2003-2008); Mobile Lifestyles: Perspectives on Work Mobilities and Gender in the High North (2012-2016); and the NUFU- financed project Gender, Poverty and Social Transformation (2006-2012). These projects have involved collaboration with researchers from Norway, Newfoundland, Canada, and Uganda, which has led to contributions in national and international journals and books.
As a co-investigator with On the Move, Siri has worked with researchers in Newfoundland and Labrador to develop a comparative NL/Norway study of mobilities in fishery areas. In addition she helped organize an international conference on the theme: “Gender and (Im)mobilities in the Context of Work,” that took place n Tromsø, June 15 -17, 2016. Several of the contributions were published in the special issue of Gender, Place and Society Volume 25 (8). ISSN 0966 369X.
