Abstract [en]

In 2007 and again in 2012, satellite imagery showed the Arctic sea-ice reaching record lows. In the international news media, striking images of polar bears and crumbling ice chunks were joined to alarmist metaphors about the disastrous impact of global climate change. In the far north itself, however, responses to rapidly diminishing sea-ice have been quite different, as new trade routes and business opportunities open up and communities re-make their identities in ways that incorporate global and local stories and objects. This panel considers the 2007 minimum and stories and objects it created, exploring some disjunctions and intersections between far north and metropolitan narratives, projects and collections.
