Freeze Frame: Historic Polar Images

Description

The whole resource illustrates the development of polar technologies, including photography, over this period. For the first time researchers will be able to search and browse the selected content, much of which was uncatalogued or inaccessible because of the inherent fragility of the negatives from which the images are taken.

21L.705 Major Authors: America's Literary Scientists (MIT) 21L.705 Major Authors: America's Literary Scientists (MIT)

Description

Global exploration in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries radically changed Western science, orienting philosophies of natural history to more focused fields like comparative anatomy, botany, and geology. In the United States, European scientific advances and home-grown ventures like the Wilkes Exploring Expedition to Antarctica and the Pacific inspired new endeavors in cartography, ethnography, zoology, and evolutionary theory, replacing rigid models of thought and classification with more fluid and active systems. They inspired literary authors as well. This class will examine some of the most remarkable of these authors—Herman Melville (Moby-Dick and "The Encantadas"), Henry David Thoreau (Walden), Sarah Orne Jewett (Country of the Pointed Firs), Edith Wharton (House Global exploration in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries radically changed Western science, orienting philosophies of natural history to more focused fields like comparative anatomy, botany, and geology.

Arctic War or Arctic Peace?

Description

Are international relations in the Arctic really that different from those in other regions ? and if so, why? Michael Byers holds the Canada Research Chair in Global Politics and International Law at the University of British Columbia. Prior to 2005, he was a Professor of Law at Duke University. He is the author, most recently, of International Law and the Arctic (Cambridge University Press, 2013). Vladimir Putin has said: "If you stand alone you cannot survive in the Arctic. Nature makes people and states to help each other." But are international relations in the Arctic really that different from those in other regions ? such as Eastern Europe ? and if so, why?

Northern Peoples

Description

The Arctic region is inhabited by many indigenous groups, who live in the world’s most northerly latitudes, but each group has its own distinct culture, traditions and history. The Freeze Frame collection contains images dating from 1875, showing interactions between explorers and indigenous groups. This resource charts the different relationships explorers to the Arctic region have had with indigenous groups and how outsiders have viewed these groups.

Changing Britain and the Heroic Age

Description

The heroic age of Antarctic Exploration is usually said to begin in the reign of King Edward VII (1901-1910), and is embodied by an outlook on life characterised by ‘muscular Christianity’ which emphasised daring and chivalry, as well as being prepared to make sacrifices for one’s country in undertaking heroic deeds. Setting off to discover the poles was another way men could ‘do their bit’ for Britain in the spirit of what was heroic and daring. This resource describes Britain During the Heroic Age, The Heroic Age of Exploration, Heroic Age Expeditions in the Freeze Frame Collection, The Death of Robert Falcon Scott, The Death of Ernest Shackleton and the End of the Heroic Age, Modern Views of the Heroic Age.
