The Arctic has, undoubtedly, held a strange, longstanding fascination on both sides of the Atlantic. In this seminar, we will explore the place/s the North Pole has occupied in the public imaginary. Starting in the 19th century and its infatuation with the Arctic, we will analyze tales by Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, and Arthur Conan Doyle, among others, before navigating to the 20th and 21st centuries. How have perceptions of the North Pole changed over time? How have engagements with the Far North shaped national discourses? Why has the allure of the Arctic persevered? These are merely some of the questions that will guide our literary voyage to the North Pole.
A reader will be made available.
