The ESRC will be funding, from January 2010, a series of four seminars on the theme of ‘Knowledges, resources and legal regimes: the new geopolitics of the Polar Regions’. The series will be co-ordinated by Dr. Richard Powell (University of Liverpool) and Professor Klaus Dodds (Royal Holloway, University of London).
The first seminar will be held at the Foresight Centre, University of Liverpool on Thursday 25 March 2010. The three other events are being hosted in London and Liverpool over the next 18 months, with the British Library hosting the London-based seminars.
Funds will be available to support the attendance of postgraduates, postdoctoral fellows and early career researchers at the seminars. Further information regarding the application process for these funds will be disseminated in due course.
