Stephen Leonard's research

28 November 2011

In 2010, Dr Stephen Leonard embarked on a year-long trip to live with the Inugguit of north-west Greenland, the northernmost settled people on Earth. His aim was to record the language, stories and songs of these communities. The traditional life of the community and its future is potentially threatened by a number of factors, one of which is climate change. Dr Leonard lived as a member of those communities, travelled on hunts, and recorded and filmed as he went. On the video below he talks about some of his experiences and reflects on a year spent in the midst of a fading culture.

Dr Leonard will be speaking as part of the Trinity Hall Forum on 29 October 2012: "Extremes:language, literature and medicine in cold climates"
