The ICE LAW Project comes out from the cold

The ICE LAW Project is close to concluding its first full year of funding and we’re in the midst of a particularly active few months. We’ve been providing regular updates on the ICE LAW Project’s website and Twitter feed. However, with so much happening in April-May-June, I’m taking this opportunity to highlight events to followers […]

ICE LAW Project schedule for Spring/Summer 2017

Since arriving at Durham in 2013, I’ve slowly been developing the core structure of The Project on Indeterminate and Changing Environments: Law, the Anthropocene, and the World (The ICE LAW Project). Thanks to a generous grant from the Leverhulme Trust as well as sponsorship from UArctic’s Thematic Network on Arctic Law, I am happy to […]

Extraterritorial Adventures

I’m just back from a fascinating workshop at the University of Utrecht’s Law School that joined leading thinkers in international law with Israeli artists Ruti Sela and Maayan Amir. The blend of international law with art theory was right down my alley, and I presented a ‘greatest hits’ paper that re-examined several past research topics […]

Two (almost) back-to-back Arctic meetings in Scotland

In what I assume is a coincidence, there’ll be two excellent conferences on Arctic themes in Scotland on back-to-back weekends in May-June. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make it to either (it’s a bad time for me term-wise, and I’m working on two major grant proposals that are both due right about […]

Seascapes symposium in New Zealand: February 2016

Mike Brown of Waikato University (and co-editor of the terrific new Seascapes collection) has announced a symposium, to be held afloat next February, where speakers will “share research around the theme of living with the sea.” Space is limited due to the boat’s capacity, so contact Mike if you think you might be interested in […]

Can you imagine a world with ice?

That headline’s not a typo. Lots of people are wondering what it would mean to have a world without ice. However, even as glaciers melt and sea level rises there’s still going to be a lot of ice around for a long time, especially in the winter. In fact, ice is likely to become more […]
