Cabinet 59: The North

Publisher Cabinet

ISBN 9781932698671

The idea of the North in modernity – its associations with sparseness and scarcity, to hardships and remoteness – has fed countless narratives of journeying to places and fates unknown. 'Cabinet 59', with a special section on "The North," includes Jessica Rowan on five centuries of expeditions in search of the Northwest Passage; Joe Duncan on the US government's rush to exploit Arctic resources made newly accessible by global warming; and Bettina Sierra on the attempts to recreate the atmospheric effects of the aurora borealis.
