Circumpolar Archives, Folklore, and Ethnography (CAFE)

New UArctic thematic network looks at how archives, ethnographic fieldwork, and folklore enrich representation of, and communication throughout circumpolar region and its people.

This network will focus on how the digitisation of manuscripts, photographs, sound recordings, and material objects improves access to collections.

It will also allow collections to be shared with host communities.

In particular, it will study the best practices of digital sharing and the ethical questions that these technologies pose.  

Centered around the existing folklore, photographic, and ethnographic collections held by its founding members.  The network also seeks to work with:

  • community organisations
  • indigenous research institutes
  • local artists 
  • media producers
  • new academic partners

The network aims to create a forum for indepth discussion regarding the role of these archives in cultural revival, which will encourage future collaborations and enable archival materials to reach wider audiences through new and exciting ideas.
