In 2017, the United Nations proclaimed a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (hereafter referred to as the UN Ocean Decade) from 2021 until 2030 to support efforts to reverse the cycle of decline in ocean health. To achieve this ambitious goal, this initiative aims to gather ocean stakeholders worldwide behind a common framework tha...

Antarctica is the most isolated continent on Earth, and ship-based tourism is the main access route for people to visit the place. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted Antarctic tourism, disrupting both travel to the continent and the management of human activity in Antarctica. Here we present a short overview of (1) the Antarctic touris...
Article
Antarctic “gateway” cities have been characterised primarily as portals through which goods and services from around the world can be transported to the frozen continent. However, recent research suggests that this concept should be expanded to address other forms of connectivity, including those felt by people living in these cities rather than si...
Chapter
Many maps relegate the icy continent of Antarctica to the margins of the planet, but there are several instances in theatre history where the place has taken centre stage. This chapter examines how Antarctica as an icescape has been interpreted in a theatrical context. Taking Manfred Karge’s Die Eroberung des Südpols (1985) and Patricia Cornelius’s...
Article
Antarctica is a remote, historically masculine place. It is also a workplace, and the human interactions there are connected to power structures and gendered expectations. Today, more than half early career polar researchers are women. However, women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine (STEMM) are also more likely than me...
Article
The term “Antarctic ambassadorship” is increasingly used to represent an individual’s connection to Antarctica and their subsequent advocacy. However, there is little clarity regarding the concept. To address this, we combined a literature review with an expert elicitation workshop. We argue that (i) the concept of Antarctic ambassador has been und...

The Routledge Handbook of Ecocultural Identity (2020) is a timely book, as across the globe more and more of us awake to our always interconnected selves. The Handbook brings the ecological turn to sociocultural understandings of self and group identities, introducing an interdisciplinary, insightful assembly of original theory and research on plan...

Tasmania hangs from the map of Australia like a drop in freefall from the substance of the mainland. Often the whole state is mislaid from Australian maps and logos (Reddit). Tasmania has, at least since federation, been considered peripheral—a region seen as isolated, a ‘problem’ economically, politically, and culturally. However, Tasmania not onl...

The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is an important legacy of the International Polar Year (IPY). APECS continues to foster engagement in education, outreach and communication (EOC) activities relating to the polar regions and provide training for early career researchers (ECRs). We highlight opportunities for training, leaders...
Article
Full-text available
Antarctica is often associated with images of masculine figures battling against the blizzard. The pervasiveness of heroic white masculine leadership and exploration in Antarctica and, more broadly, in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine (STEMM) research cultures, has meant women have had lesser access to Antarctic research...

This article provides an overview of the geopolitical events and countries involved in the establishment of the Antarctic Treaty. We provide a summary of the main provisions to keep Antarctica for peace and science, including relevant conventions for the protection of the Antarctic environment, and how do Consultative and Non-Consultative Parties m...
Article
This paper examines how Antarctica has been depicted in recruitment material, and compares the expectations set up in the advertising imagery with the reality of expeditioners’ experiences. Textual analyses of advertisements and job descriptions are used to reveal dominant themes, including the trope of extremity, while interviews with those who ha...
Article
This special issue of The Polar Journal showcases six papers from the “Depths and Surfaces” Antarctic humanities and social sciences conference, held in Hobart from 5 -7 July 2017. The introduction argues that while the physical continent of Antarctica is beyond the reach of most, the images and narratives that circulate in cultural discourse offer...
Article
Full-text available
Cows and Antarctica rarely exist in the same sentence, let alone the same region. In 1933 Admiral Richard Byrd changed that, when he took three golden Guernseys to Little America II. These Antarctic cows may have appeared as little more than a footnote in Antarctic history, but their story is revealing of the commercial and media context of Byrd’s...

The Early Career Researchers Network of Networks (ECR NoN) was created in 2016 to facilitate cooperation between early career researcher organisations worldwide. Its goals and objectives are to: -- connect early career researcher organisations across the globe and serve as a platform for them to coordinate, (re)present, exchange information and sha...
Article
As examples of cultural production, plays and their treatment of imagined Antarctic space can provide valuable insights into how attitudes towards the continent have developed and been expressed, by revealing the dominant narratives at various points in time. In recent years, the traditional focus on Heroic Era narratives has given way to an engage...

In November 1937, an unusual work premiered at the Hamburg State Opera. Entitled Das Opfer (“The Sacrifice”), the one-act opera tells the story of Robert F. Scott’s last expedition, focusing on the famous final moments of Lawrence Oates. While the action features only four main characters, a large chorus – dressed for much of the time in penguin co...

Examining how Antarctic station design has developed from 1957 to the present can provide an insight into both the needs (material and social) of those who have lived on ‘The Ice,’ and the variety of ways humans have interacted with the Antarctic environment itself. Whether stations were rebuilt, renovated or newly built, their design has responded...
Thesis
Full-text available
This project examines representations of Antarctica in the theatre and analyses these in terms of space and place in order to chart the development of awareness of the continent. As examples of cultural production, plays and their treatment of imagined Antarctic space can provide insights into how attitudes towards the continent have developed and...

Reinhard Goering's play Die Südpolexpedition des Kapitäns Scott (1929) tells the story of the famously tragic British polar expedition led by Robert F. Scott in 1911–12. As the first public staging of the story, the play created considerable controversy in Britain when it premiered in Berlin in 1930. A late Expressionist drama, it offered perspecti...
Article
Theodor Fontane’s novels. Although he had no formal theatre training, Fontane spent thirty years as a theatre critic for the Vossische Zeitung (Thunecke 865), and his familiarity with theatrical techniques is apparent in the structure of Frau Jenny Treibel. The novel contains the most dialogue of Fontane’s novels and resembles a play in many aspect...

To establish a collaborative research network and engage other researchers in developing a research agenda for Antarctic tourism. This project is supported by the Special Project Fund of the Academic Consortium for the 21st Century (AC21).
Project
Antarctica's future hangs in a delicate balance. This project is the first substantial comparative program to investigate how five"'gateway cities' might both re-imagine and intensify their relations to Antarctica and each other. The project is intended to revitalise these relations through assessment and research processes that include supporting citizens to frame future forms of engagement. It will develop a platform of tools to instigate a more robust Antarctic custodial network of partner organisations to support these cities in evaluating and valuing the impact of their Antarctic connection in an integrated way.
