Our colleagues from the Arctic Centre in Nadym, Yamal, organise from 17-19 November an interdisciplinary conference. These guys belong to a group of Russian researchers that truly believe in interdisciplinarity, and value a lot anthropological input from the West. If somebody is interested in taking part in that conference, you can write me a note in the comment section here. They promise simultaneous translation, and visa support if somebody wants to go personally. Maybe they can even pay somebody’s accmodation and travel costs within Russia if you can get yourself to Moscow. But mostly the idea is that some of us may contribute a presentation via skype. Topics are welcome in any field of Arctic anthropology, but most preferred maybe with an interdisciplinary angle towards biology, psychology, genetics, health research or medicine.
