IPSSAS 2011 will be a unique opportunity to discuss issues and present current research on how past and present Inuit societies across the Circumpolar North have coped with the trade-off between modernization and heritage. Our goal is to cultivate substantive discussions and exchange of the highest scholarly standard in the social sciences, arts and humanities.
We invite graduate students working on arctic issues, based in university institutions worldwide, to participate in this session. PhD students will be given priority.
