Workshop: Sovereignty or Security? Canada’s Arctic Strategies in Changing Political and Geostrategic Contexts

October 21, 2022

An eminent historian on the Canadian Arctic, Shelagh Grant (1938-2020) taught Canadian Studies at Trent University for seventeen years. Her myriad contributions to scholarship include Sovereignty or Security? Government Policy in the Canadian North, 1939-1950 (1988) and Polar Imperative: A History of Arctic Sovereignty in North America (2010), which encouraged critical reflections on the connections between sovereignty and security in the Canadian North in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

This one-day workshop, convened in honour of Shelagh and hosted in a hybrid (in-person and virtual) format, will bring together established and emerging thinkers to discuss various topics related to sovereignty and security in the Canadian and Circumpolar Arctic.

This invite-only event is co-organized by the North American and Arctic Defence and Security Network (NAADSN) and the School for the Study of Canada at Trent University.
