Patricia Wells, Postdoctoral Fellow at the Arctic Institute of North American and an Arctic archaeologist, will discuss how people construct seascapes by learning, experiencing, and engaging with their biophysical surroundings. The character of seascapes is formed by peoples’ day-to-day practices, social organization, technology, and resources use. Dr. Wells will explore aspects of Newfoundland inshore cod fishers’ seascapes and reflect on the seascapes of Newfoundland’s prehistoric Dorset people (ca. 2000-1200 years ago).
