An Interdisciplinary Study of British Writing and Arctic Exploration over Four Centuries

I am applying for an NEH fellowship to complete my book, Northwest Passages: Authorship, Exploration, Disaster, which will present the first interdisciplinary examination of how distinct kinds of writings, representations, and objects helped shape the course of nearly four centuries of Arctic exploration. In addition to offering an original framework for understanding the significance of Arctic exploration within Britain's better known imperial theaters, Northwest Passages contributes to histories of authorship and print culture a neglected examination of the roles of corporate and governmental authorship, publication, and circulation models, departing significantly from the literary and legal contexts of copyright on which most histories of authorship and print modernity are based.
