January 20: Sea and Society Talk- In the footsteps of Otto Nordenskjöld
Cultural heritage in Antarctica
120 years ago Otto Nordenskjöld led a Swedish research expedition to Antarctica. Today, the remains are acutely threatened by climate change. This Sea and Society talk describes the escapades of Otto Nordenskjöld's expedition. It also discusses questions such as: What is this cultural heritage? Whose cultural heritage is it? What are the appropriate measures?
