“Perspectives on Resource Extraction in the Global Arctic”
Although foreigners have journeyed to the Arctic since at least the fifteenth century in search of natural resources, the global networks engaged today in extracting the region’s commodities are bigger and more complex than ever before. By relying on approaches from political geography and remote sensing, Mia will shed light on the contemporary pathways and processes of Arctic resource extraction.
