From May 6 to 10, the Institut nordique du Québec (INQ) will hold a training session for graduate students and researchers at the beginning of their careers working in northern Quebec and the Canadian Arctic. In order to prepare their fieldwork, participants will benefit from the advice of a team of multidisciplinary trainers, who share a strong commitment to the North. Thierry Rodon, Aude Therrien and Julie Fortin are part of the training team. They will discuss political and scientific issues in the North. Note that most of the training will be offered in French, but some interventions will be conducted in English. Visit the INQ website for registration details.
