Extractive Industries and the Arctic Workshop will bring together
international scholars studying the historical social, environmental and
economic impacts of extractive industries (mining, oil, and gas) in the
circumpolar Arctic and boreal regions. The workshop is organized by the
Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society and held at Memorial
University of Newfoundland in St. John’s, NL. It will provide an opportunity
for environmental historians, historical geographers and other historical
researchers to share ideas, perspectives, and research on extractive
industries from multiple countries within the circumpolar world, including
Russia, the Scandinavian Countries, Canada and the Unites States.
Interested individuals may attend the paper critique sessions, but registration is required. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
