'Across the 'Fundamental Field' in the European North: Ethnological Perspectives on Indigenous Knowledge and Land-based Learning for Sustainability', Professor Ullrich Kockel, Institute for Northern Studies.

Drawing on a critical reading of Continental philosophy through an exchange between geopoetics (Kenneth White) and topology (Jeff Malpas), the seminar explores the ‘fundamental field’ (Malpas & White 2021) of human ecological relationships in the European North, considering both Indigenous life-worlds and the experience(s) of people who are no longer indigenous to place. From both emic and etic ethnological perspectives, the possibility of becoming Indigenous in a meaningful sense, and the potential of the wisdom that ‘sits in places’ (Keith Basso) to inspire and guide land-based learning for sustainability are explored with reference to examples from Scotland and the Baltic.
