From Nunavik to Iceland: Climate, Human and Culture through time across the coastal (sub)Arctic North Atlantic

Tildelt: kr 0,65 mill.

Prosjektet har høsten 2021 hatt to webinarer, ett med tittel "Representation of winter and climate in historical sources of Nunatsiavut/Labrador", med Dr. Marie-michéle Ouellet-Bernier, og ett med tittel "Using water isotope proxy systematics to infer past changes in the Arctic water cycle", med Dr. Elizabeth Thomas. Prof. Henning Howlid Wærp presenterte resultater fra prosjektet på et webinar ("Hva er posthumanisme?") arrangert av Universitetet i Vilnius våren 2021, om samisk skjønnlitteratur i klimaforandringens tid.

NICH-Arctic proposes transdisciplinary investigations of Human, Cultural and Environment interactions in the Arctic-subarctic North Atlantic in a context of climate change and industrialization. The Arctic-Subarctic coastal regions are subject to large amplitude changes of climate and sea ice conditions, which play a vital role in accessibility through navigation and livelihood of the cultural communities since prehistoric times. The history of this regions is however poorly documented from instrumental data. Disciplinary knowledge has been developed, but with limited communication across disciplines, and between scientists and stakeholders. Hence, it appears urgent to improve sectorial exchanges to develop an integrated perspective on climate, habitat, archeology and culture in the context of accelerated changes in the Arctic and subarctic areas. With the aim to assess on resilience and vulnerability of the Arctic-subarctic North Atlantic the project will integrate multidisciplinary information according to three foci: (i) natural variability of sea ice, climate and vegetation, (ii) adaptation of local human populations to their habitat and (iii) cultural representation and perceptions of the natural environments by local and outside-of-the-region populations. The target areas include the regions of northern Nunavik, Nain in Labrador, Nuuk in Greenland and Svalbarðshreppur, Iceland, where NICH- Arctic team members have gained experience and are willing to further conduct transdisciplinary studies. The variety of different climatic and environmental conditions in the study areas will permit to compare adaptation strategies and cultural representations of climate changes in polar settings.
