Valuing the past, sustaining the future: Education, Knowledge and identity across three generations in coastal communities – A comparative approach

Project Details


This qualitative project aims at establishing a deeper knowledge base of the interplay between generation, knowledge, identities and working life. Childhood and intergenerational relations represent a particular focus of investigation. Across three generations in five countries (Norway, Faroe Islands, Ireland, Cyprus, and Tasmania), the programme explores work, everyday life and knowledge among children and their families, past and present. Professor Anne Trine Kjørholt (NTNU, Norway) is the project manager. Firouz Gaini is the leader of the Faroese project. Kjartan Sleire is the project assistant in the Faroe Islands. The project is funded by the Research Council of Norway
