Connecting Energy Transitions Across the Arctic. NEWS AND CONFERENCES

Dr. Giuseppe Amatulli, a Postdoctoral Fellow at at the School of Public Policy & Administration at Carleton University in Canada, has invited our team of three PhD researchers — Kaylia Little, Róisín Kennelly, and Elena Adasheva-Klein — to present as guest lecturers for his undergraduate course CDNS 2302/INDG 2302 Land, Water, Capitalism. On March 11, 2024, we conducted a 45-minute presentation for undergraduate students. Our talk was centered around the anthropology and ethnography of energy. We shared insights from our three research projects in Tiksi (Northern Siberia), Iqaluit (Nunavut), and Faroe Islands, focusing on energy transitions in the Arctic. The lecture was followed by an engaging Q& A session, featuring insightful questions from the students.

Our collaborative project, titled “Connecting Energy Transitions Across the Arctic, ” was initiated during the UArctic Academy for Sustainability 2023 at the University of Northern British Columbia. The Academy was supported by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and organized through the UArctic Thematic Network on Arctic Sustainable Resources and Social Responsibility.
