Dear colleagues, We would like to invite you to submit your abstract for ICASS X - the congr= ess of IASSA the International Arctic Social Sciences Association - until D= ec 31, 2019.

Arkhangelsk, Russia from June 15-20, 2020. 10th International Congress of Arctic Social Sciences (ICASS X): Arctic Gen= erations: Looking Back and Looking Forward

Abstract submission. Max. 250 words. December 31, 2019: https://icass.uni.e= du/abstract-submission

The Promise of Arctic Infrastructural Development: Connectivity, Mobility, = Prosperity Organised by Peter Schweitzer (University of Vienna), Olga Povoroznyuk (Uni= versity of Vienna), Gertrude Saxinger (Austrian Polar Research Institute - = APRI)

Theme 3: Arctic Infrastructure or Theme 18: Migrations & Mobilities

Large-scale infrastructure projects in the Arctic seem to have the power to= enchant different publics such as industry representatives, local resident= s and indigenous people, transnational stakeholders, as well as policy make= rs at all scales. At the same time, such projects trigger fear and concern = among some of these groups. The promises of modernity and development throu= gh mobility, connectivity, and prosperity, which are often at the heart of = this enchantment, deserve critical examination in the context of rapid soci= al transformation, climate change, and resource extraction. We invite paper= s addressing a wide range of questions about the connection between infrast= ructural development and these social and economic costs and benefits, as w= ell as about the actual social transformations they set in motion. Starting= from our ongoing Austrian Science Fund (FWF) project "Configurations of Re= moteness (CoRe)", we encourage participants to present case-studies on thes= e topics, in order to continue theoretical conversations on a pan-Arctic le= vel.
