A vision for future research at the Arctic Centre

Prof. dr. Peter Jordan, director Arctic Centre, RUG

This presentation examines the activities currently conducted by the Arctic Centre, University of Groningen, and sets out some long-term research goals to be developed over the coming years. It starts by looking briefly back at the history of the Arctic Centre, and examines how its research and teaching have evolved and changed over the last three decades. It then outlines the new ‘mission statement’, and outlines how the current range of research, teaching, outreach and consultancy activities feed into these goals. Looking further ahead, it is clear that one of the major strengths of the Arctic Centre is its strong commitment to conducting inter-disciplinary research. Also distinctive is its focus on examining human-environment relations in the polar regions from a long-term perspective, drawing on archaeology, history and ecology to understand human responses to environmental change over deeper time periods. At a time of rapid modern climate change in the polar regions, understanding these longer-term cultural dynamics is now of greater importance than ever before.
