Profile Information

In our research, we strive to understand e.g. the identities, livelihoods and ways of life of the people in the Arctic, people's adaptation to social, economic, political and ecological change; people’s relation to the industrial development, as well as the roles of the humans and the environment in the adaptation of Arctic domestic species.

The fieldwork is focused especially on Northern Fennoscandia, Northwest Russia, West Siberia, the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) and Kamtchatka. However, our academic interest is in topics rather than a particular region.
