Book Reading/Discussion: Hunting the Northern Character, by Tony Penikett
November 6, 2019 at 4:00 pm
University of Washington, Seattle, Communications Building, Room 120 (followed by reception hosted in Room 204)
4109 E Stevens Way NE
Seattle, WA 98195

The Canadian Studies Center, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies; Quaternary Research Center’s 50th Anniversary Lecture Series; Walter Chapin Simpson Center for the Humanities; and the Consulate General of Canada in Seattle present: Book Reading/Discussion: Hunting the Northern Character, by Tony Penikett.

We often hear world leaders, environmentalists, and the media invoke “the northern character” and “Arctic identity,” but what do these terms mean, exactly? Stereotypes abound, but these southern perspectives fail to capture northern realities. During decades of service as a legislator, mediator, and negotiator, Tony Penikett witnessed a new northern consciousness grow out of the challenges of the Cold War, climate change, land rights struggles, and the boom and bust of resource megaprojects. In Hunting the Northern Character, Penikett argues that the negotiation of Indigenous land rights treaties and self-government agreements in Alaska, Northern Canada and Greenland over the last fifty years have totally transformed the character of the Arctic, in ways the capital cities of Canada, Denmark, Norway, Russia and the United States do not yet recognize.

RSVP by Friday, November 1, 2019 to [email protected] (the first 15 to register will receive a free copy of Hunting the Northern Character!)
