New Issue TOC: Sibirica: Interdisciplinary Journal of Siberian Studies (Vol. 17, Issue 2)

Young Lee's picture

Dear Colleague,


This open issue of Sibirica features work from scholars from a breadth of disciplines: history, anthropology, linguistics, and environmental studies. It begins with a look at the contribution of Finnish ships and sailors to the Russian American Company’s efforts in the North Pacific. An in-depth look at the career of A. E. Nordenskiöld in the late nineteenth century follows and the “sentimental pessimism” of the Artic north portrayed in recent media is challenged.
