Title: Arctic Circle
Url: http://arcticcircle.uconn.edu/
Creator: Chance, Norman A. (Norman Allee), 1927-
Publisher: University of Connecticut
Description: The Arctic Circle Web site at the University of Connecticut aims to stimulate among viewers a greater interest in the peoples and environment of the Arctic and Sub Arctic region. As stated on the Welcome page, this 'electronic circle' has three interrelated themes: natural resources; history and culture; social equity and environmental justice. In addressing these issues, the presentations utilize a range of textual and photographic materials, and in the near future, sound and short video recordings. Specific topics include discussions of Sustainability, Equity, and Environmental Protection; Northern Development and the Global Economy; Ethnographic Portraits of indigenous peoples in Alaska, Canada, Northwest Siberia, etc.; and specific studies dealing with the impact of petroleum, gas, hydroelectric, and other forms of large scale natural resource development in selected regions of the Circumpolar North. New material is being added on a regular basis.
