Issues such as evolving governance, climate change,
economic development and globalization are
reshaping the North. Recognizing that the region
occupies a prominent position in Canada and
internationally, faculty and students in Carleton’s
Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) are
engaging with Northern communities, governments
and Indigenous organizations to conduct
groundbreaking research that addresses the complex
social and environmental challenges in the North.
FASS’s interdisciplinary teams are investigating a
wide range of Northern issues such as language
documentation and revitalization, climatic change
and the cryosphere, and negotiating livelihoods in
changing socio-economic environments. Building
on FASS’s long-term research alliances in the North,
new interdisciplinary graduate programs in Northern
Studies which focus on integrating the social and
environmental sciences with policy development will
be launched in September 2017.
