Summer school: Mining towns in transition

Gå tillbaka till föregående sida


The objective of this project is to organise a combined PhD student summer school and researcher seminar in northern Sweden, focusing on changing mining cities of the Arctic undergoing a process of industrialisation, operation or deindustrialisation. Participants will examine how Arctic extractive-based communities are coping with rapid change during industrialization, operation and de-industrialization. This school, which will be held in the Norrbotten region of Sweden, will follow the one organized in 2019 in northern Quebec. This second school will thus allow for important comparisons to be drawn between Quebec and Fennoscandian mining settlements, which will lead to scientific communications and publications. Amongst others, scientific articles are being written for publication in a special issue of the journal Extractive Industries and Society.
