The International Arctic Social Sciences Association (IASSA) announces a
final call for registration to the 8th International Congress of Arctic
Social Sciences (ICASS VIII). The congress will convene 22-26 May 2014
on the main campus of the University of Northern British Columbia in
Prince George, British Columbia, Canada.

ICASS is held every three years, providing an international forum for
discussion about social science research in the Arctic. The theme of
ICASS VIII is 'Northern Sustainabilities'. The plural is used to
underscore that 'sustainability' has social, cultural, economic,
political, and environmental dimensions; and that definitions of the
concept vary.

Keynote addresses at ICASS VIII will include:

- "Traditional Self Governance in a 'Modern' Context," delivered by
Chief Joe Linklater, Gwichin Council International, Canada;
- "Northern Futurology: The Next 20 Years," delivered by Alexander
Pelyasov, Director, Centre of Arctic and Northern Economies at the
Council for Research of Productive Forces, Russian Academy of Sciences,
Russian Federation;
- "Inuit are Used to Change and to Adapt to New Places and New
Situations: Our History Proves that. The Challenge is Elsewhere,"
delivered by Henriette Rasmussen, Director, Greenlandic Broadcasting,
and former Minister of Culture, Education, Science and Church,
Greenland; and
- "Environmental Humanities and the Arctic - Transforming Knowledge,
Transforming Sustainabilities," delivered by Sverker Sorlin, Professor
of Environmental History, Division of History Science, Technology and
Environment, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden.

Final registration deadline: Thursday, 15 May 2014.
