The University of Northern British Columbia, with the cooperation of
Syktyvkar State University, is offering a unique Circumpolar Ethnographic
Field School in 2005. Applications are welcome from all interested students.
Students will be registered for a full term (15 credits) of upper division
coursework. Courses will include Russian language, ethnographic methods, and
an ethnographic project. Students will acquire basic skills in ethnography
while participating in an actual research project. Participants will be
under the supervision of Canadian and Russian ethnographers and researchers.
The first half of the field school will be based in Syktyvkar and the
Southern Komi village of Kuratovo, where students will study the Russian
language and receive preliminary training in anthropological research
methods. Later in the summer, students will travel to the northern Izhma
Komi communities. The summer will conclude with a trip to the Russian tundra
to the north of the Arctic Circle where students will meet reindeer-herding
communities and will participate in the daily life of indigenous communities
in the Russian North. The field school will run from May 14th to August
14th. Estimated cost for the participants is approximately $6,500 (U.S.) and
that includes airfare, accommodation, food and tuition fees. The application
deadline is February 27th, 2005 but we strongly encourage interested
students to register ASAP.
