Virginia Mulle, Associate Dean, Arts & Science and Associate Professor of Sociology presented a paper, ‘Without Fish We Would No Longer Exist’: The Changing Role of Women in Southeast Alaska’s Subsistence Salmon Harvest,” at the Human Dimensions in the Circumpolar Arctic Conference in Umea, Sweden October 8-10, 2008. This was an interdisciplinary conference under the Auspices of the International Polar Year (IPY) which focused on the human dimensions of the Arctic region which have been neglected during previous Polar Years. The conference paid particular attention to human life and conditions in the North in the past, the present and the future; how climate, ecology and different types of resource use have influenced conditions for life in the North; and the role of national and international politics for northern development and conditions.
