Conference proceedings

For 1721-2021 conference participants:


On behalf of the GREENLAND – DENMARK 1721-2021 organizing committee, we thank you for some inspiring days on June 9-11.

As mentioned on the final day of the conference, we would like to invite you to contribute to the 1721 Greenland-Denmark conference proceedings, which will be published as an anthology of selected papers. We are in dialogue with Routledge about publishing the proceedings as part of a book series.

We hope many of you will be interested in participating with a paper under these headlines and encourage you to send us your full paper (max 10.000 words) by September 30th 2021 on

If you have any questions about this call or the themes, do not hesitate to contact the editorial team with any questions.
