Summary

The Anchorage Arctic Research Summit (ANCARS) aims to spur innovation in how we study and understand the North. The event will provide an opportunity for Anchorage researchers to share their knowledge of the Arctic and to network with others in the community.

This year’s conference theme, “Transforming Research and Scholarship in the North" will be addressed in two morning sessions: "Transforming Research & Scholarship on Arctic Economic Security" and "Transforming Research & Scholarship on Arctic Environmental Security." Each session will feature a keynote speaker followed by a panel presentation.

During the afternoon session participants will engage in tabletop discussions that focus on creating interdisciplinary frameworks. Participants at each table will be asked to address a research challenge in the context of interdisciplinary effort.

Organizers invite abstract submissions for keynote and panel presentations on the focus of the two session topics: Arctic Economic Security and Arctic Environmental Security. Both topics are broadly defined to ensure a diversity and balance of perspectives, including perspectives rooted in Indigenous world views, non-traditional research methods, and/or framed in terms of gender.

Abstract submission deadline: 6:00 pm (AKDT) 25 March 2019.
