2014 ICASS Conference

Image

Had a great first day at the International Congress of Arctic Social Sciences at the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George, BC. Dr. Myra Hird and I attended numerous talks including an impassioned keynote on self-governance by Chief Joe Linklater of the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation and an insightful paper discussion with Dr. Julie Cruikshank, author of Do Glaciers Listen (which I look forward to reading in the near future!).

It looks like we’ve got much in store over the next few days, including a tour of UNBC Bioenergy plant. More updates and photos of the excellent subarctic scenery to come.
