WarPod#2 - Danita Burke: Perceptions of the Arctic

Danita Catherine Burke (Keynote speaker)

Activity: Talks and presentationsTalks and presentations in private or public companies

Description

The WarPod talks to Danita Catherine Burke about perceptions of sovereignty in the disputed Arctic region. Though no one officially owns the arctic (and its waterways), Danita discusses how Canadians have developed a strong narrative of ownership of the Arctic validated by folk lore and the drawing of territorial lines on maps. The importance of such narratives is likely to increase as climate change alters the geography of the region.
