Following on last year's pilot, there is a new round of the Arctic Graduate Shool Seminar series on perspectives on sustainability in Arctic research. This year's series of lectures is called "Changing Arctic", and will cover key concepts and perspectives to sustainability in the changing Arctic under the broad overarching theme of Green transition.
The seminar will run throughout the academic year of 2023-2024 as a series of monthly meetings that will take place in hybrid mode. Each lecture will consist of a short keynote talk by invited experts followed by group work.
Today, 7 December, Janina Priebe will hold the lecture. The title of his talk will be announced soon. Janina Priebe is a researcher in the history of science and ideas, with a focus on environmental history, at Umeå University.
