Imagining and Inhabiting Northern Landscapes

Imagining and Inhabiting Northern Landscapes

Northern regions have been conceived of as national treasures, pristine wildernesses,
scientific laboratories, and homelands; Northern lands have been colonised, exploited for
resources, environmentally threatened and protected. This Working Group is
for faculty and graduate students from across the University of Toronto whose research
topics are connected to Northern landscapes, including such areas as Russia, Canada, the
United States, and Scandinavia. We approach Northern landscapes as both a geographic region and as a conceptual space.

In our second year of activity, we will continue to function as a discussion group, and we will provide more opportunities for graduate students to present their work in progress to the group and to receive critical and informed feedback. To this end, we are planning a graduate student workshop for Spring of 2016. We also plan to connect with relevant cultural events in the Greater Toronto Area, and to bring in one guest speaker in each term.
