11/25-26/2021 Online Workshop: Ethics and Methods in Arctic Transformative Research

Arctic research has seen growing interest in co-creative and collaborative aproaches in recent years. Awareness about the harms of past and present practices and the need to decolonize institutions and methods and to Indigenize research has increased.

To ensure that exploitative research practices will be overcome, and research relationships are improved, it is necessary to address the "how to" of co-creative research. In the Workshop Stan Wilson and Barbara Schellhammer among others will talk about their experiences of publishing a book together.
