Study Catalogue Highlight
Living in the landscape (LiLa) is an multidisciplinary summer school organized annually with UArctic ASAD TN (Arctic Sustainable Arts and Design) for MA and PhD students where landscapes are explored with culturally sensitive and new materialistic investigations and art-based processing. The central themes are cultural, ecological and social sustainability and posthuman issues related to the circumpolar North´s sociocultural environments.

We encourage members of UArctic community to submit new infrastructures, update existing ones if needed, and in general to explore the UArctic Research Infrastructure Catalogue.
