Baffin Bay Seminar Series

Organized by Dorthe Dahl-Jensen, Nicole Wilson, Elizabeth Worden and Lauren Candlish, University of Manitoba as an Arctic Science Partnership Initiative.

The Baffin Bay seminar series will be arranged to draw researchers and communities together through a series of talks, presentations, and discussions. The vision is to include presentations from interested Inuit, social, and natural science researchers from Canada, Greenland, and Denmark. Through the seminar series we hope to learn about ongoing research and other priorities that could be addressed through future research. It is the hope that the seminars will enable dialogue that can inspire future collaborations and new ideas.

The seminars are open for all interested so please share with those who might want to join. If you would like to give presentation pls contact the organizers. (Elizabeth.Worden@umanitoba.ca)


The seminar will be held on Wednesdays between 10-11 am CST (16-17 UST) on ZOOM:
