Foredrag – Rewilding textiles, language, and self- Wool, clothing, and textiles in the context of agriculture, landscape, and ecology
Årolilja Svedal Jørgensrud
What's the matter? A symposium inquiring into contemporary material practices in design; how are materials designed, grown, made, reused and recycled. A set of talks, workshops and exhibitions addressing why these matter, now more than ever.
Wool, design and textiles in the context of agriculture, landscape and ecology.
Ecological literacy in design education. Wool, textiles, and design in the context of agriculture, nature, and ecology.

Populærvitenskapelig – Mapping contents. Method 3. Auditing total fashion assets: counting clothing and the tools and resources of clothing care: Fletcher, Harrison, Klepp and Jørgensrud, ´Whole fashion audit`
Årolilja Svedal Jørgensrud, Ingun Grimstad Klepp, Kate Fletcher
This book presents a unique collection of 50 methods for exploring the actions, relationships and material contents of wardrobes. Organised as a practical guide to gathering information about people and their clothing beyond the point of purchase, it includes visual, tactile and verbal methods and others which involve making together, loitering and a session in the gym. With contributions from four continents from both in- and outside academic circles, this book and the real lives of wearers of clothes that are its focus, create a powerful new narrative of a more diverse, resourceful, emancipatory and holistic fashion and clothing system.
Norwegian agriculture is undergoing rapid structural changes leading to larger farm units and fewer farms, altering the context of farming and the capacity to respond to change. At the same time, climate change is manifesting as seasonal changes, warmer temperatures, and increased precipitation. This study applied a combination of contextual vulnerability and double exposure frameworks to assess current adaptive capacity and vulnerability to the combined effects of climate change and structural change in a rural community in Western Norway. This study employed a triangulation of research methods, covering case study interviews, informal observations and secondary data analysis, to get insight into the process of adaptation and deepen the understanding of how adaptive responses feed back on vulnerability and future adaptive capacity. The objective of this study was to identify to what extent there is a disparity between structural changes in Norwegian farming and building climate adaptive capacity in agriculture. It is assumed that developed countries such as Norway have a high capacity to adapt to climate variability and change. However, this study found that farmers are vulnerable to changing climatic conditions because socioeconomic and political processes of change undermine climate adaptive capacity. Results further suggest that all farmer types, independent of scale, production type, values, and size, are to some degree vulnerable to a diminishing farming community due to the contagious nature of farm closures and lack of understanding among non-farmers. Moreover, this study found that the way in which farmers currently respond to other processes of change affect long-term adaptability of individual farm households and farming communities to future climate change. Policymakers should encourage a diversity of farm sizes rather than focusing on increasing production on a few large farms, particularly in the context of Western Norway where there are certain physical and social limits to the expansion of production that are determined by local contextual conditions such as topography, climate, and the culture of farming.
#Amazing grazing - bærekraftig kjøtt og ull fra sau som beiter i norsk utmark
Kjøtt og ull fra norske sauer kommer fra gårder med ulikt ressursgrunnlag, ulike driftsopplegg og ulik ressursbruk. I dette prosjektet skal vi undersøke sauebonden sitt driftsopplegg, forbrukeren sin innsikt, og rammevilkårene som både bonden og forbrukeren må forholde seg til. Hvordan kan produksjonen forbedres, og hvordan kan forbrukeren få mer kunnskap og nærhet til hva beitebruk bidrar med gjennom produktene?
