Tromsø museum, 2-4 October 2008
This two day seminar will explore the way that indigenous people create homes and homelands for themselves in the circumpolar North.
The seminar will consist of a set of public lectures by specialists on the cosmology and archaeology of circumpolar dwellings as well as the historical dynamics of households. There will be equal time in the programme for craftspeople to display modern and traditional dwellings and to speak about their meaning.
