In July 2017, the EPB coordinated a workshop titled “Towards the Incorporation of the Humanities and Social Sciences into Large Polar Research Projects” at the SCAR Humanities and Social Sciences Expert Group (HASSEG) conference in Hobart, Australia. The aim of the workshop was to explore a series of questions about stakeholders and the role of humanities and social sciences (HASS) in Antarctic research to collect responses from the Antarctic Humanities and Social Sciences community. The workshop mirrored the one held by EU-PolarNet at ICASS IX in Umea, Sweden, in June 2017, but engaged with the Antarctic humanities and social sciences community.
