4. Teaching qualifications
4.1
Note: Ad-hoc lectures and seminars have not been included.
Asterisk (*) indicates extensive experience in administrating and managing courses and teaching.

2015, 2016, 2017* “Democratic Practices of Unequal Geographies”—Annual PhD Course/Seminar (2 hp)(with intake of MA students), which I initiated in 2015 and now organize annually at the African Centre for Cities, University of Cape Town with political philosopher and Colombian scholar Dr. Andrés Fabián Henao Castro from University of Massachusetts, USA. Structured around a five-day intensive reading seminar in July, we facilitate a discussion that lets participants ‘rub’ political theory (from classics to contemporaries, from Plato, Marx, Fanon, Rancière, Radical Black Tradition etc.) with global South/postcolonial urbanism studies (Simone, Bayat, Holston, Roy etc.). The aim is to share insights and trouble both sets of literature to help re-think what democratic practices can mean when thought from deeply unequal geographies. Participants are given space to share and re-think their own research projects. In 2015 there was 10 participants from 3 South African universities; in 2016, we had 21 participants from 4 South African universities (UCT, UWC, Wits and DUT) and from universities in Namibia, Canada, and Sweden.
2016                          “Urban Political Ecology of the Global South: HICCUP Workshop”—One week training of PhD student and 3 Master students at the Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda, 4-8 June 2016 as part as part of my HICCUP Heterogenous Infrastructure Project.
2014*                        “Urban Political Ecology in African Cities”PhD Course at the University of Pretoria, Tswane, South Africa, 22-26 September 2015. Organized by Henrik Ernstson, Mary Lawhon, Joe Pierce and Jonathan Silver (alphabetical order) with 20 participants and with a majority from/of African universities. The week included discussion of literature, guest lectures, field trips and group work. The week was funded by the Antipode Foundation and my Formas research grants. We aim to fund a similar workshop during 2017 or 2018 and every 2-3 years after that. http://www.situatedecologies.net/archives/1313
2014*                        “Rethinking Urban Ecosystem Services and the Politics of Urbanization in a ‘World of Cities”PhD Workshop/Seminars, Portland State University (PSU), USA, 1-3 April, 2014. Organized by Henrik Ernstson in collaboration with PSU students and with over 20 participants focusing on the intersection of ecology, urbanization and politics, in particular critical discussions around ‘ecosystem services’.
2013, 2012*           “Urban Ecology as Science, Culture and Power”—PhD Course (3 hp) at KTH Environmental Humanities Laboratory (in 2013) and at the Stockholm Resilience Centre (in 2012), I developed the course, gave lectures and was the principal course administrator, responsible for planning, content and examination. I was assisted by my then PhD student Joshua Lewis.
2010, 2011*           “Society and Natural Resources: Module on Collective Action”—Undergraduate Course in M.Sc. Conservation Biology, Percy FitzPatrick Institute, University of Cape Town. I developed a module that covered: i) Collective action in a natural resource context (from a social movement theoretical lens); ii) Social science paradigms for people and nature (political ecology, systems ecology, ecosystem serices); iii) Methods: social network analysis and interview approaches; iv) Role play around Ostrom’s common property theory (using computer-based “The Fish Game”, see below). I taught this for five days in August of every year.
2009, 2011*           “Network Analysis in Social-Ecological Studies”—PhD Course (3 hp) held first at the University of Cape Town in 2009 and then at the Arizona State University in 2011. I developed the course that teaches: i) Basic skills in doing network analytical research in social-ecological studies, including the design of surveys and handling social and ecological data structures; ii) Basic skills in network analysis using real datasets from my research; iii) Network theory, drawing on its application in sociology and ecology and its interpretation in Natural Resource Management (NRM) and Social-Ecological Systems (SES) research. I developed the course, lectured, was the course administrator and responsible for planning, content and examination.
2009                          “Cosmopolitical Experiments”—Invited as Guest Lecturer on M.Sc. Course in Experience Design called [Un]Real Estate, Konstfack, Stockholm (School of Craft and Design in Stockholm). I provided a full-week module with theoretical lectures, field trips, and engagement with civil society activists around the contested articulation of values in urban green spaces, and the role of art and design in urban planning/politics. I returned to participate in examination and exhibition at the end of the course. Course leader: Martín Ávila, Konstfack.
2006-2008*            “Natural Resources and Society”—Undergraduate Course (15 hp) at the Department of Systems Ecology, Stockholm University. The course focused on systems ecology, common pool resource theory, social-ecological systems analysis, resilience theory and non-equilibrium ecological theory (complex adaptive systems theory), and stakeholder analysis. I worked as lecturer and course administrator, responsible for planning, content, examination and organising guest lecturers. I was responsible for major re-organization to align the course with the wider MSc programme. During 2009 and 2010 I returned as guest lecturer on urban ecology. Roughly 20-35 students.
2007*                        “Social and Ecological Network Analysis”—PhD Course (3hp). I organized the course with Beatrice Crona and Örjan Bodin at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University. This advanced course provided students with guest lecturers that presented state-of-the art analysis in social and ecological network theory, followed by in-depth discussions of pre-circulated reserach articles. 20 students.
2004-2006*            “Världens Eko”—Undergraduate Course (7.5 hp) on Sustainability, Globalization, Justice and Democracy at the Centre for Transdisciplinary Research (CNM)/Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University. The course is a popular interdisciplinary course with 80-120 students each year provided in evenings. I lectured and worked as course administrator, responsible for planning, content, examination and organizing guest lecturers. When I took over in 2004, I was responsible for a major re-organization that boosted student numbers from around 50, to between 80-120.

Use in teaching: E.g. (i) to introduce and discuss the multiple ways by which urban ecology is placed in the know (from expert ways of knowing, to vernacular ways); (ii) what does the ‘postcolonial now’ mean; (iii) ethical considerations in doing research that includes filming. Direction and Production: Henrik Ernstson and Jacob von Heland (74 min, forthcoming in 2016).  http://www.situatedecologies.net/archives/portfolio/ways-of-knowing-the-film
2018 (forthc.)          Film for teaching “Moving Closer To Nature: Updating How We Think about Nature”.

Participating scholars: Erik Swyngedouw (University of Manchester), Sarah Whatmore (Oxford University), William Adams (Cambridge University), Anne Rademacher (New York University), Michael Adams (Wollongong University), Dan Brockington (University of Manchester), Malini Ranganathan (American University), Jodi Dean (Hobart and William Smith Colleges), Maria Kaika (University of Manchester), and Nik Heynen (University of Georgia). Use in teaching: To introduce contemporary discussions around ecology/nature/socionature, the ‘more-than-human’ and political ecology. It can be viewed before-hand or in class. Direction and Production: Henrik Ernstson and Jacob von Heland (format, either 60 min, or 2 x 30 minutes, forthcoming 2017). http://www.situatedecologies.net/archives/portfolio/film-project-moving-closer-to-nature
