The module begins by explaining the myth of the Circumpolar North as a distant, harsh and exotic place, devoid of community. The module then defines some of the terms used to refer to the world’s northernmost places including: the Arctic and Subarctic, the Boreal Region, the North, and, finally the Circumpolar North. The module goes on to explain why it is important to study the Circumpolar North as one large region and how countries cooperate; the difference between traditional, indigenous, and western knowledge; and what interdisciplinary study is and why it is so important. The module concludes with a discussion of diversity and comparative analysis.
