The 2020 Stefansson Memorial Lecture, December1

The Stefansson Memorial Lecture will be held on December 1, 2020. The annual Stefansson Memorial Lectures are delivered in commemoration of the explorer and anthropologist Vilhjálmur Stefansson - of his life, work and vision for the Arctic. These lectures are generally held around the time of Stefansson's birthday, November 3.

This time the lecture is delivered by Dr Margaret Willson, the author of Seawomen of Iceland: Survival on the Edge.

In partnership with Stefansson Arctic Institute and the Institute of Arctic Studies at Dartmouth College, the Wilson Center’s Polar Institute will host this keynote lecture which is to be followed by an expert panel discussion. See here for more information.
