The Camden Conference and Prince Memorial Library in Cumberland present Susan A. Kaplan on January 14 at 6:30pm on Zoom. She will discuss “Change and Continuity in the Contemporary Arctic”. The Arctic is experiencing rapid environmental and cultural changes. This illustrated lecture will examine some of the ramifications of these changes, how are they being felt, and how residents of the North American Arctic are responding. Contact to register.

Susan A. Kaplan is Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center at Bowdoin College. An Arctic anthropologist and archaeologist, she studies prehistoric and historic Inuit cultures, the history of Arctic exploration, and material culture. She is particularly interested in Inuit responses to environmental change and contact with Western cultures. She has conducted fieldwork in northern Labrador (Nunatsiavut), Canada for over 35 years, and archaeological, archival, and museological projects have taken her to Alaska, northeastern Ellesmere Island, and Newfoundland as well.
