This workshop is part of a series of research events organised as part of the ERC Arctic Cultures project. It brings together team members, leading international experts and interested scholars into dialogue around the themes of the project. The focus for this workshop specifically is to examine the co-production of Arctic knowledge formations through encounters between indigenous inhabitants and non-indigenous actors. Presentations will draw upon empirical research and theorisation to investigate spatial formations of the Arctic and the role of Northern actors and institutions.

Speakers include: Johanne Bruun, Kirsten Hastrup, Nanna Kaalund, Jonathan King, Peter Kulchyski, Peter Martin, Alex Partridge, Pitseolak Pfeifer, Richard Powell, Søren Rud, Pamela Stern, Jaanika Vider and John Woitkowitz.

Attendance is free but prior registration is required.
