IASC logoDear IASC Community,

This is a reminder that IASC is now receiving proposals for consideration for IASC funding in 2020. Proposals can be limited to one Working Group, relevant to all five, or anything in between. (Note: Working Groups must allocate at least 40% of their budget in cooperation with other Working Groups.) All proposals will be fully discussed and considered at the Working Group meetings at ASSW.

The proposal template is here: https://iasc.info/images/media/print/logo-forms/IASC_Proposal_Template.docx

Please note that while proposals do NOT have to be submitted by WG members, all proposals should be discussed with WG leadership/membership before submission. Cross-cutting proposals should engage all relevant collaborators early in the development phase. When you prepare your proposals, please consider how the activity relates to the Working Group scientific priorities here: https://iasc.info/outreach/news-archive/396-new-iasc-science-work-plans, and the IASC Strategic Plan here: https://iasc.info/strategic-plan. If you are thinking about a proposal, please be proactive in seeking consultation!

The deadline for proposal submission is 1 March 2020.

Best,

Allen

We welcome proposals for sessions to be held either during the UArctic Congress program dates on October 6–7 or during a joint day with the Arctic Circle Assembly on Oct 8. Sessions can be comprised of dialogues and discussions, both oral and poster presentations, as well as panel or round table discussions. Please note that sessions on Oct 6-7 are 90 minutes, while sessions on Oct 8 are limited to 60 minutes. Posters can be only presented in sessions held October 6 and 7.

Session proposals should include a short abstract on the session’s planned content, as well as a list of speakers and their topics. If possible, 50% of the speakers should be confirmed at the time of submission; if not, please describe what kind of process the session conveners will conduct for finding and confirming the session speakers.

All sessions should strive for gender and geographical balance and to include Indigenous and youth and early career scientist representation to highlight both scientific and Indigenous Knowledge and views from the youth (16-26 years old). In general, sessions run for 2 hours and can have several conveners, however there must be one designated primary convener who will also be the main contact person. All together max of 30 parallel sessions will be organised with the possibility of 12 additional sessions depending on the room allocations and content of sessions.

The UArctic Congress 2020 is part of Iceland’s chairmanship of the Arctic Council (2019-2021) with the theme Together towards a sustainable Arctic highlighting the cooperation between states and peoples of the region. The Congress will highlight three of Iceland’s priority themes:

  • Arctic Marine Environment
  • Climate and Green Energy Solutions
  • People and Communities in the Arctic

do ziemi torella e1574712136388Dr  Jacek  Szymala z Instytutu  Kulturoznawstwa Uniwersytetu Wrocławskiego odnalazł  przedwojenny reportaż z  polskiej  wyprawy  na  Spitsbergen  z  1934  r.  Film  pod  tytułem “Do  Ziemi  Torella”  został wyreżyserowany przez uczestnika wyprawy – Witolda Biernawskiego, a wydawcą była nieistniejąca już wytwórnia Panta Film. W okresie międzywojennym dzieło było prezentowane również za granicą (Norwegia, USA). Po wojnie ślad po filmie zaginął i przez ostanie dziesięciolecia pozycja ta uważana była za zaginioną.

Odnaleziony film został zdigitalizowany, wykonano i dodano napisy w języku angielskim. Trwa praca nad analizą i interpretacją odnalezionego materiału w szerokim kontekście dziejów oraz przebiegu wyprawy i przygotowania do pokazów w Polsce.
 
Szerzej na temat znaleziska w Biuletynie Informacyjnym Wydziału Nauk Historycznych i Pedagogicznych UWr nr 28 (XI 2019).

Warto dodać, że “Do ziemi Torella” to jeden z dwóch zmontowanych filmów Biernawskiego w 1935 roku. Drugi pt. “Ku wiecznym lodom Spitsbergenu” prawdopodobnie nigdy nie wszedł na ekrany, być może zostanie jeszcze odnaleziony.

Więcej o wyprawie w 1934 roku można przeczytać w opracowaniu Prof. Piotra Kohlera.
