Re-Imagining Area/International Studies in the 21st Century: The Arctic as an Emerging Global Region

The Canadian Studies Center, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies (JSIS), in collaboration with the JSIS Title VI area/international studies centers and a number of units in both the Colleges of Arts and Science and the Environment, was awarded a $40,000 grant from the College of Arts and Sciences to administer a project entitled, Re-Imagining Area Studies in the 21st Century: The Arctic as an Emerging Global Region. The goal of the project is to formulate new ideas concerning how area and global studies can be organized at the U.W. in decades to come. This project will re-imagine the present configuration of area/international studies to include a new emerging world region – the Arctic. In addition, this project will attempt to broaden traditional area/international studies scholarship that encompassed the social sciences and humanities, to include the natural sciences.

2013-2014 Fellows

We are pleased to announce the UW Arctic Research Fellows for 2013-14 as part of UW’s Future of Ice. The objectives of the fellowships are to foster innovative research projects that strengthen area studies at the UW and build research linkages across disciplines, particularly between the natural and social sciences and the humanities.

The Arctic Research Fellowships are supported by funding from an Arts and Sciences Grant, “Re-Imagining Area & International Studies in the 21st Century,” awarded to the Canadian Studies Program, Program on Climate Change and Atmospheric Sciences. Other contributing partners include the Center for West European Studies, Ellison Center for Russian, East European and Central Asian Studies, Center for Global Studies, and East Asia Center (all in the Jackson School), Anthropology, Scandinavian Studies, Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, Oceanography, and the Quaternary Research Center.
