Rethinking hospitality, resistance and the calling

Explorations of decolonial research strategies


  • Kaja Ronsdal



What is hospitality, what is its content? Through a narrative from Northern Norway, I explore the concept from theological and phenomenological perspectives, and as something that may entail resistance from and for those involved.The Artic North is the starting point, followed by a small narrative, as certain events took place there in 2015 that set in motion encounters and narratives that were worth investigating further.In the explorations of hospitality, I include the perspective of lived space and the phenomenological concept of prereflexivity, which are prerequisites for a discussion of the calling and hospitality.
