This article examines how work plays a major role in Danish Greenland literature – often with the workplace as a zone of conflict. At first, a literary historical presentation introduces the tradition followed by an analysis of Jørgen Liljensøe’s novel Barakkerne (1977). Lastly, newer Danish Greenland literature by Kim Leine and Iben Mondrup are discussed. The approach is primarily place-theoretic but also involves postcolonialism and political circumstances.
