Collaborative Research: Arctic Horizons: Social Science and the High North

Arctic Horizons is a multi-institution collaboration that aims to provide the Arctic social science research community – including current and prospective contributors in the fields of indigenous science, natural science, engineering, and humanities – an opportunity to reassess the goals, potentials, and needs in the diverse disciplinary and trans-disciplinary currents of social science research in the circumpolar North for the next decade. UAF and CANHR, under the leadership of Dr. Stacy Rasmus, hosted one of the re-envisioning workshops in Fairbanks. The workshop titled: Indigenous Scholarship in the North: Decolonizing Methods, Models and Practices in Social Science Research brought together nearly 50 Indigenous experts and researchers from diverse academic and cultural backgrounds to explore the role and contributions of indigenous frameworks and knowledge systems in advancing fields of science and informing global solutions.Arctic Horizon Logo
