In the more than a half century since the end of World War II, we have gone from the creation of academic and scientific disciplines around the Arctic to issues-based circumpolar studies in the twenty-first century. This chapter seeks to show the roots of northern studies following World War II and their evolution into circumpolar studies following the fall of the Soviet Union and the establishment of the Arctic Council and the University of the Arctic. As will be seen, each disciplinary focus yields a different kind of understanding of the Far North, and all the disciplines lend themselves to an appreciation of a circumpolar world.

Keywords:   Arctic, circumpolar, University of the Arctic, Arctic Council, northern studies, circumpolar studies
