Welcome to the CIRCLA homepage!
The Centre for Innovation and Research in Culture and Learning in the Arctic (CIRCLA) is a cross-disciplinary, cross-faculty centre, based at the Department of Culture and Global Studies. Its purpose is to communicate, organize and support the development of Arctic-related research at Aalborg University.
CIRCLA's geographical area of interest is the Circumpolar North (incl. Greenland, the northern parts of Scandinavia, Canada, Alaska and Russia, the North Atlantic and the Polar Sea). As regards research, the field of interest is defined broadly as Arctic Studies, but particular attention is given to research in the human sciences within the areas of social and cultural analysis, communication, culture-driven innovation, sustainable development (including tourism and management of natural and cultural heritage), humanities informatics and learning.
