My ethnographic journey in this project will lead me to the Russian North, to the Nenets Autonomous region, on the Barents Sea coast.
Nice blog by Daria Burnasheva from this place at the Arctic Ocean coast in East Siberia. Topics cover indigenous issues, history, deportation, and life in general.
Colleagues in Newfoundland share their research results and insights on the history of Arctic mining, particularly in Canada. Worth reading for those with an interest in extractive industries in the Arctic. Their blog also highlights the political issues related to the legacy of Arctic industrialisation.
The International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry intends this blog to be a source of accessible information about the work of ICR and the people involved in the various projects that are undertaken by or supported by ICR. The blog will also track the activities of ICR. The International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry (ICR) is based in Guovdageaidnu / Kautokeino in the heart of Sami reindeer husbandry in Norwar and was established in 2005 with an international board of reindeer herders and others from Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. You can visit ICR’s homepage at www.reindeerportal.org

Project by anthropologist Tobias Holzlehner from Alaska that studies the flow of people, commodities, economic practices and spatial strategies, and symbols across two borders in the Russian Far East. A must-read for all interested in border studies!
