Stories of how the lives of people and of animals interweave can help us solve fundamental questions about the environment. Through fieldwork in seven fieldsites across the Arctic from the Russian Federation, to Fennoscandia, Canada, and Alaska, we hope to document a wide variety of relations between humans, animals and places where they live. Our focus will be on 'domestication' - the skill of building relationships with entities outside of one's home.

Our research sites will be reindeer herding camps, fish camps, evocative landscapes, archives, as well as biotechnological laboratories. Aside from challenging the idea that domestication is always dominating, we will develop a language to express how communities of people and of animals invigorate life in Northern places.
