The proposed presentation will discuss the questions: What role do the Humanities play or could play or should play in Arctic/Northern science and research projects? Why do we need the Humanities in Arctic research?
The presentation will explore how a Humanities component may add new and interesting dimensions to any research project or scientific study dealing with the Arctic. Indeed, the inclusion of the Humanities in some form now seems to be a necessary component of the many projects dealing with climate change in the Arctic as it touches on many human dimensions.
