Circumpolar Region

Posted on June 10th, 2011 by

The fourth annual Gustavus Global Insight program will highlight the Circumpolar Region throughout the 2011-2012 academic year. As a campus-wide initiative the Global Insight program is designed to increase cultural and international awareness. In the spirit of the liberal arts tradition, this interdisciplinary program will include class time and course offerings dedicated to the featured region, special presentations, lectures, and panel discussions by members of the Gustavus community and invited guests, fine arts events, and service-learning opportunities. The Circumpolar Region—Alaska, Northern Canada, Russia, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden—will be considered from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Topics addressed will range from issues of sustainability and climate change, indigenous peoples, education, business and trade, food, to literature, languages, film and the visual arts.
