A new website, focusing on Inuit literature from Nunavik, Nunavut, Nunatsiavut and Greenland is now available. The objective of the site is to " allow better knowledge of the Inuit men and women who have written on their culture, their territory and their vision of the world, to discover their works and to grasp their perception of history". This site was created on the initiative and under the responsibility of the International Laboratory for Research on the Imagination of the North, Winter and the Arctic, directed by Daniel Chartier, professor at Université du Québec à Montréal.
