The Sami Studies Seminar

Time Monday 31 May, 2021 at 09:00 - 10:30
Place Zoom

Recently, Umeå University has adopted a new Research Data Policy for all researchers. This Research Data Policy follows the internationally acknowledged FAIR principles for scientific data management. In essence, the FAIR principles ask that research data must be Findable, Accessible Interoperable and Reusable.

The FAIR principles have been criticized by Indigenous communities across the world, as the movement toward open data and open science does not necessarily engage with Indigenous Peoples rights and interests. In response, the CARE-principles have been developed. Designed to be included along side the FAIR principles, CARE asks that data be to the Collective benefit, provide Authority to Control, show Responsibility and consider Ethics.

At this seminar we are pleased to invite Associate Professor Maui Hudson, Director of the Te Kotahi Research Institute, member of Te Mana Raraunga Maori Data Sovereignty Network, Co-Director, Local Contexts and Co-founder of Biocultural Labels who will provide a broader indigenous perspective.

Associate Dean of Research at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Per Axelsson, will introduce the seminar by presenting a few remarks on the Research data policy at Umeå University.

The seminar will take place in Zoom and registration is mandatory. Register below no later than May 30.

The seminar will be recorded and accessible to registered participants after the seminar (until June 15).
