The Anchorage Arctic Research Summit (ANCARS) aims to spur innovation in how we study and understand the North. The event will provide an opportunity for Anchorage researchers to share their knowledge of the Arctic and to network with others in the community.
This year’s conference theme, “Transforming Research and Scholarship in the North" will be addressed in two morning sessions: "Transforming Research & Scholarship on Arctic Economic Security" and "Transforming Research & Scholarship on Arctic Environmental Security." Each session will feature a keynote speaker followed by a panel presentation.
Organizers invite abstract submissions for keynote and panel presentations on the focus of the two session topics: Arctic Economic Security and Arctic Environmental Security. Both topics are broadly defined to ensure a diversity and balance of perspectives, including perspectives rooted in Indigenous world views, non-traditional research methods, and/or framed in terms of gender.
Further information, including participant registration and the event agenda, will be available soon through the Anchorage Museum website.
The tentative agenda is currently available as a Google document.
