Breaking the Ice/Briser la Glace

Proceedings of the 7th ACUNS (Inter)National Student Conference on Northern Studies

Topics range from fossil remnants on Axel Heiberg Island to collaborative tourism planning in the Yukon; from the influence of sea-ice and ocean circulation on arctic climate, to the differences between Inuit healing and western medicine. Yet, there is a common thread that links all of these papers. It is a place. It is the North. The importance of such a perspective is often lost in an academic world that rewards specialization by emphasizing expertise in a narrow field. But the boundaries between disciplines are becoming more and more artificial in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. An interdisciplinary approach built on 'place' provided a platform from which researchers could transcend these boundaries. The ACUNS conference, and by extension, these proceedings, helps 'break the ice'. Includes papers by Marni Amirault, Donna L. Atkinson, Johanna Bergé, Nilgun Cetin, Paul G. Myers, Suzanne de la Barre, Vasiliki Douglas, Audrey R. Giles, Sarah Giles, Brenda Guernsey, Joanna Kafarowski, Gita J. Laidler, Francis Levesque, Patrick T. Maher, Andrew C. L. Postnikoff, James F. Basinger, J. M. Ross, Michelle Schlag, Anne-Pascale Targé, Mariana Trindade, David Greene, Mike Gravel. Extended abstracts by Anna Dabros, Marcia J. Waterway, Colleen M. Davison, Ekaterina Evseeva, Patrick Faubert, Harri Vasander, Line Rochefort, Eeva-Stiina Tuittila, Jukka Laine, Ulrik Pram Gad, D.C. Hardie, J.A. Hutchings, Ioana Radu, Frank J. Sowa, Reid A. Van Brabant and Antoni G. Lewkowicz.

About the Authors

Ryan Danby teaches in both the Department of Geography and the School of Environmental Studies at Queen's University. His research interests lie at the interface of ecology and geography and his work draws upon and contributes to the fields of biogeography, landscape ecology, and conservation biology. The geographical focus of his research is primarily the circumpolar north, and particularly northern Canada and Alaska. Professor Castleden's interests include community-based participatory research, Indigenous research, Indigenous-settler relations, environment and health interconnections, and ethics. Her research is interdisciplinary and collaborative, and strives to address environmental and social injustices and health inequities. She received her doctorate from the University of Alberta.
