Nanna Katrine Lüders Kaalund (2021): Explorations in the Icy North. How Travel Narratives Shaped Arctic Science in the Nineteenth Century. University of Pittsburgh Press: Pittsburgh.

In this study of the making of Arctic science, Nanna Katrine Lüders Kaalund’s originality lies in her attention to Greenland as well as the Canadian archipelago and the shores of the Arctic Ocean; the role of narratives in shaping knowledge; and the role of the Inuit, who have too often been ignored by historians. She brings literary sensibilities as well as historiographical ones to this book, which will accordingly be of interest to historians of imperialism, historians of science, cultural historians, literary scholars, and those simply fascinated by the Arctic.
