CFP: Darkness (Longyearbyen, Svalbard)

The Island Dynamics research project is organizing an interdisciplinary conference to explore the cultural and environmental aspects of darkness.

Appropriately, the conference will take place in Longyearbyen – the world’s northernmost town, and the main settlement on the Svalbard archipelago. 13-17 January 2019, when the conference will be held, is during the polar night – the months of the year in which the sun never rises above the horizon.

The deadline for abstracts is 30 June 2018, and abstracts can be submitted here.

Full conference details, including registration information.
