Drawing on the natural sciences, the social sciences, history, literature and the arts, this two-day interdisciplinary conference focuses on the intersection of science, policy, race and gender in the way the Arctic and Antarctic are studied, represented, inhabited and imagined. The conference opens with a presentation by award-winning filmmaker Isaac Julien of his short film True North, based on the story of Matthew Henson, the first African- American to explore the Arctic with Robert Peary in 1909. Lisa Bloom, author of Gender on Ice, and Monica Miller, assistant professor of English at Barnard, join Isaac Julien in conversation immediately following the screening.
