Project Summary

This activity involves the running of a conference session at the ASSW 2021, supporting the participation of in particular ECR and Indigenous presenters in order to facilitate broader involvement and participation in discussions. Following the conference organisers combining this and a related session on the Arctic in a post-pandemic world, the activity will be the primary focus of the first of two connected sections. In brief, the session invites reflections from on how notions of pasts, presents, and futures structure their research: How are current issues informed by past understandings; and how are projections of the future altered by the immediate present? Specifically, the session will address how the current pandemic as well as the climate crisis could be informed by past experiences and provide guidance for the ways in which we conceptualise Arctic futures.
