Other Student Research Opportunities
Communicate the lived experience of climate change from the perspective of Iņupiat Elders
Mentor seeking one undergraduate student researcher with an interest in fine arts, Alaska Native history, social/cultural anthropology, and/or communications. This exciting research initiative explores visual tools and representational techniques to help communicate the lived experience of climate change to outsider audiences from the perspective of Iñupiat Elders from North Slope Alaska. The student researcher will participate in transcribing and analyzing Elder interviews, and will help identify common themes of social environmental change to become the focus of visual narratives. Interested students must be willing to dedicate a minimum of 3 hours per week to this project. Students can apply for URSA funding to receive either a stipend or academic credits with a tuition award for the spring semester.
