Personal Statement

Dr. Collings’ research focuses on the Inuit of the Canadian Arctic. Though his research interests are varied, they revolve around two central themes, human development and human ecology.

The human development dimension draws on traditions in psychological anthropology and the anthropology of aging, and addresses the influence of historical time, social change and economic success on different age cohorts, on the structure of the Inuit life course, and on Inuit conceptions of successful aging.

The human ecology dimension of his research addresses the economics of contemporary subsistence, the influence of externally imposed regulations on foraging activities, change and continuity in food sharing practices within the context of climate change, and, most recently, the relationships between food insecurity and health and mental health.
