Changing Arctic

Arctic Graduate School Seminar Series

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, 17 October, Miguel San Sebastian will hold the lecture. He will talk about Is Sámi-ness different from Same-ness? Some reflections on the health of the Sámi in Sweden. Miguel San Sebastian is a Professor in Public Health at Umeå University.
