Exploration and the Antarctic

Literary scholar and explorer Charles Neider discusses the nexus of literature, environmental science, and Antarctica and comments on the continent in terms of its ecological importance to the rest of the globe.

Neider’s books include Edge of the World: Ross Island, Antarctica and Beyond Cape Horn: Travels in the Antarctic. He was a leader of the summer institute for North Carolina citizens, “Voyages of Discovery:  On the Literature of Travel and Exploration,” held at the National Humanities Center in 1980.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
