Subject Area
Carson Fellow Shane McCorristine untersucht die Auffassung bezüglich der Arktis im viktorianischen Zeitalter, welche oft als verzaubert oder sogar böse dargestellt wurde. Anhand von Darstellungen und Abbildungen der Arktis des 19. Jahrhunderts zeigt er, wie eine neue Auffassung der Region inspirierend wirkte und wie daraus resultierend neue Ansätze entwickelt wurden, die für unser heutiges Verständnis von der Arktis entscheidend sind. Shane McCorristine ist Kulturhistoriker mit Interesse an spiritueller und übernatürlicher Forschung in der britischen Kultur, sowie der Literatur der arktischen Erforschung im viktorianischen Zeitalter, die von teils übernatürlicher oder surrealistischer Natur waren.
The Arctic as a blank, unexplored region is not a new concept. Carson Fellow Shane McCorristine investigates Victorian era understandings of the Arctic, which often posited the Arctic as enchanted or even evil. With representations and depictions of the Arctic from the nineteenth century, he shows how a new understanding of this region inspired some people to dissent from the established scientific and geographical viewpoints—developing ideas that he maintains are crucial to our current understanding of the Arctic. Dr. McCorristine is a cultural historian with research interests in spiritualism and psychical research in British culture, the literature of the supernatural, surrealism, and Arctic exploration during the Victorian Period.
