Wednesday afternoon

Weds afternoon we heard two papers; one from Joe Bouchard of Universite Laval, Canada and Laura Kissel, Byrd Polar, USA.

Joe described a project to create a collection of foundational documentary sources in northern studies. Of interest is the clear and detailed collections policy that Joe presented.

Laura presented a “teaser” video for the film that we will see on Friday. Byrd undertook a lecture series, which were illustrated with films. Laura described the complexities of dealing with with the various versions of the films. Some of the most interesting content of the films include “cows in Antarctica” and the “Knights of the Grey Underwear”. Can’t wait to see the film on Friday.

Weds afternoon concluded with the Business Meeting.
