Conversations from the North Conference

Conversations from the North Conference

Will be held in association with the 11th Rectors' Forum of the University of the Arctic, and will take place in Aberdeen from 27 to 29 August 2017.

Conversations from the North: Scholars of many disciplines and inhabitants of many places in dialogue with one another, with animals and plants, and with the land

In recent years the University of Aberdeen has emerged as a world-leading centre for interdisciplinary research on the circumpolar North. This was recognised, in 2012, through the establishment of ‘the North’ as one of the University’s four strategic research themes.

In order to celebrate and consolidate our work in this area over the past five years, we are convening an international conference on the theme: Conversations from the North: Scholars of many disciplines and inhabitants of many places in dialogue with one another, with animals and plants, and with the land.

The conference will be fully interdisciplinary, with themes including: the Anthropocene in the Arctic; movements and encounters of northern peoples in the long term; health, demography and culture change in the North; land, sovereignty and indigenous rights; political regimes and international relations in the circumpolar North. 

A call for abstracts, for both oral and poster presentations, is now open, with an extended submission deadline of 14 March. Full instructions for submission, along with details of the conference theme, programme and registration, are available at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/uarctic/abstract-submission/.   

Hope to see you in Aberdeen in August!
