Arctic Horizons: Forging Priorities for Arctic Social Sciences and NSF Funding


This is an abstract from the "Celebrating Anna Kerttula's Contributions to Northern Research" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

Arctic Horizons – a multi-institution collaboration funded through NSF's Arctic Social Science program – brought together the Arctic social science research community to reassess goals, potentials, and needs affecting the diverse disciplinary and transdisciplinary currents of social science research in the circumpolar North for the next decade. We pooled the collective knowledge and ideas of approximately 200 western and Indigenous scholars to re-envision Arctic social science research priorities, and how they are communicated and represented, for the coming decades. The full report is now available ( In this session honoring Anna Kerttula’s contributions to northern research, we will present an overview of project findings, focusing especially on aspects of the project related to northern archaeological research.
