The editors of the Routledge Handbook of the Polar Regions invited me to write a chapter for this publication. I submitted last month the chapter on Exploring and Mapping the Antarctic: Histories of Discovery and Knowledge. It was an interesting journey for me to work on that chapter. The book should be available in late 2017.
Maps are not only geographical orientation tools – it is also a sort of mindset. That was the interesting part to discover during my research for this chapter.
