Arctic crime


Arctic crime is an interdisciplinary research group on crime in the Arctic - with a special focus on crime in Greenland and the portrayal of crime in media and fiction.

The aim is to focus on crime in Greenland as it unfolds in the Greenlandic reality, and how it is treated in media and fiction.

The research group uses multimodal approaches to illuminate Arctic crime with the intention of uncovering the complexity of Arctic crime and the questions that can be asked about it.

In the longer run, the intention is to establish a network with branches throughout the Arctic and the Nordic region and, by extension, gradually expand the research group with the participation of researchers from other universities.
