Iqualit, City of Sovereignties


Monday 16th March

6pm, Room 214, New Academic Building, LSE

 

With Professor Rob Shields

(Sociology/Art and Design, University of Alberta)

 

How is a city on Baffin Island, an arctic capital even, changing Arctic sovereignties? Iqaluit, the capital of Nunavut, in Canada's high Arctic, is a point of contact between traditional circumpolar Inuit mobilities and newer global flows and knowledge constructions.

This talk considers the emergence and impact of Iqaluit as a cultural and political centre for notions of sovereignty and metropolitan visions of the Arctic as a white wilderness.
