Based on these conferences and workshops we plan to publish a refereed anthology, which will constitute a curriculum for study programs at UM and UiT. The joint editorship will be held by one person from Tromsø and one from Montana. In addition, we will stimulate our participants to publish their papers in international journals.

The workshops and the conferences will be a point of departure for future cooperation in research. Ph.D. students will also be involved in these projects. Both Missoula and Tromsø have institutions embedded in greater academic environments, so that in future projects we may also invite other institutions to take part.
