Études Inuit Studies

Managing editor(s): Caroline Hervé (Directrice) / Editor(s): Aurélie Maire (Rédactrice en chef)



Études Inuit Studies, a semi-annual scholarly journal, has published since 1977. It is devoted to studying traditional and contemporary Inuit societies from Canada, Alaska to Greenland and Siberia from a broad social science and humanities perspective (ethnology, politics, law, archaeology, linguistics, history, etc.). Over the years, the journal has become a central meeting point of a vast scientific communications network open to all disciplines and scientific horizons. Each volume contains articles, book summaries, science information and yearly reviews of doctoral theses and articles that have appeared in other journals.
