Christina Adcock, a University of Maine professor of Canadian studies and history, has assembled the “Northern Nations, Northern Natures” international workshop Nov. 8–11 in Stockholm, Sweden.
The workshop goal, according to Adcock, is “to explore transnational and comparative approaches to northern environmental history, including the history of boreal, subarctic, arctic and polar regions.” In addition to a series of lectures from senior researchers, Ph.D. students from Canada, Sweden and Finland will present research in progress.
The workshop is made possible by funding from Formas, the Swedish Research Council, and the Network in Canadian History and Environment (NiCHE). It is co-organized by Adcock and Peder Roberts of the Royal Institute of Technology. The workshop will take place at the Royal Institute of Technology, also known as Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH), Sweden’s largest, oldest and most international technical university.
