Traditions, Traps and Trends : Transfer of Knowledge in Arctic Regions Paperback

Edited by Jarich Oosten, Barbara Helen Miller


The transfer of knowledge is a key issue in the North as Indigenous people meet the ongoing need for adaptation in their habitat.

In eight essays, experts survey critical issues surrounding the knowledge practices of the Inuit of northern Canada and Greenland and the Northern S?mi of Scandinavia.

Reflecting the ongoing work of the Research Group Circumpolar Cultures, these multidisciplinary essays offer fresh insights through history and across geography as scholars analyze cultural, ecological, and political aspects of peoples in transition.

Traditions, Traps and Trends is an important book for students and scholars in anthropology and ethnography and for everyibe interested in the Circumpolar North.
