Radical Fermentation Dialogue Series:Dr. Aviaja Lyberth Hauptmann, project leader, Greenland Center for Health Research, University of Greenland, Ilisimatusarfik in dialogue with Jessica Bissett Perea
This series brings together coordinators of the DHI transcollege research cluster Radical and Relational Approaches to Fermentation and Food Sovereignty for interdisciplinary dialogue about fermentation science, Indigenous food sovereignty, performance, feminist science studies, and radical/relational approaches to fermentation. We invite participants with interests in these topics from across campus to join the series and build a research community. Each event will feature a presentation of one scholar’s work, followed by a dialogue led by another research cluster member and questions from event participants.

After acquiring her Ph.D. in metagenomics from the Technical University of Denmark, she moved back to Greenland to lead the research project The Greenland Diet Revolution at the University of Greenland. The project is focused on understanding the microbial importance of Indigenous Greenlandic foods prepared in nature.
