Teaching abroad (in the Republic of Sakha Yakutia, Russia)

Writing blog entries is definitely not my life element. However, sometimes you realize that it is a good place to highlight some activities going on at the Arctic Centre and thank our supporting funding agencies, which make these activities possible. Anthropology of climate change, sea water, snow as well as indigeneity and space issues were in the focus of my lectures series and workshops in the Republic of Sakha Yakutia. There were active, curious students and interested docents. The only difference between teaching at our Arctic Studies Program in Finland and teaching at the Yakutsk University and Arctic State Institute was the number of students: up to 30 in Lapland University and up to 200 in Yakutsk.

My activities in the Far North were supported by the University of Arctic and EU FP 7 ACCESS project (Arctic Climate Change Economies and Society)
