Abstract

In this session, we will discuss the (geo)political side of Arctic and Antarctic regions. What is the difference between the polar regions? Who do they ‘belong’ to, and how has power and knowledge over the Arctic and Antarctica historically been gained? Who has access to the places and the data about it? We invite contributions from Johan Gärdebo, Naana Kaalund, and Sverker Sörlin before a joint discussion about the histories of knowledge and control of these regions.
