Evidence clearly shows that the world’s ice is melting and that catastrophes are likely to follow, if they aren’t occurring already. But how can we address climate change and work toward climate justice when so much of our relationship with Arctic ice is driven by economic and cultural practices that perpetuate systems of inequality, commodification, and domination—the very systems that produced and now perpetuate anthropogenic warming? This presentation focuses on Greenland glaciers and icebergs in the North Atlantic Ocean to expose some of these embedded contradictions in the way we study, narrate, and interact with Arctic ice, even in the work supposedly meant to reduce climate change impacts. The goal is to develop new stories and studies of ice, to work toward greater glacier justice.
