The Meaning of Ice: Co-production of knowledge and community action in a changing Arctic
Drawing on experience from over two decades of close collaboration with Inuit communities in the Arctic, Dr. Fox will illustrate the powerful ways our understanding of the changing Arctic climate can be advanced when we link Inuit knowledge and visiting science. She will use examples from community-led research, land-based programs, and harvesting to show how co-produced knowledge, Inuit self-determination in research, and supporting community-based action are fundamental to addressing climate and environmental challenges in the Arctic and beyond. Dr. Fox will centre Arctic weather and sea ice in the story, and connect to the works of her colleague, friend, and photographer Robert Kautuk, whose photography exhibition accompanies this year’s lecture.
