Colloquium – Shari Fox Gearheard
October 2, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Title: The Meaning of Ice: People and Sea Ice in Three Arctic Communities
Dr. Shari Fox Gearheard, a geographer, researcher, and long-time Arctic resident, will discuss Inuit culture, language, and ways of knowing sea ice and snow based on her collaborative work with hunters and Elders on Baffin Island. At a time of tremendous change in the Arctic, Inuit provide important understanding not only of the Arctic environment, but of the human place within it.
