Bio

Johana Evelyn Montalvan Castilla is a doctoral candidate and research fellow at the University of Stavanger (UiS) in Norway. Her current research project entitled "Children's participation and experiences in Smart and Sustainable cities" researches on children’s participation, competences and learning experiences in the development of Smart and sustainable cities. Smart cities have moved from the understanding of merely being cities with a strong technocratic or technological focus, to try to be more inclusive, sustainable cities with a human, participatory focus. The topic and context of children growing, living and participating in such cities is new and understudied. Thus, her project explores the opportunities, constraints and challenges Smart cities may bring for children’s democratic participation, children's learning outcomes and place in the city.
Background and experience
Johana earned a Masters degree in Social Anthropology from the university of Bergen (UiB) with a specialization in educational subjects and a 5-year bachelor degree in Social Sciences (Sociology, History, Anthropology) and in Archaeology from San Marcos university. She has also worked as a university lecturer and as an educator, teaching children of different age groups in Norway and abroad. Prior to the start of her PhD project, Johana worked for several years at the Arctic university of Norway (UiT) doing research on digitalization processes and their effects on Norwegian society. She also researched and published on the topics of food security, human security and worked as a lecturer in societal security. 
Research interests
Early Childhood Education, Sustainability, Smart cities, Network Society, Urban Childhoods, Citizen Participation, Food Security and Sustainable Communities.
