Record #161759:

Peripheral vision: aspects of science in the Arctic (1840-1890). On Dr John Rae, the commensurability of 'ethnoscience' and the 'vulgar subterfuge' of going native / Huw W.G. Lewis-Jones.

Title: Peripheral vision: aspects of science in the Arctic (1840-1890). On Dr John Rae, the commensurability of 'ethnoscience' and the 'vulgar subterfuge' of going native / Huw W.G. Lewis-Jones.
Author(s): Lewis-Jones, Huw W. G.
Date: 2002.
Abstract: Suggests that Rae's championing of native methods of travel challenged modes of thought generally considered inviolate in Victorian Britain, presenting a potentially destabilizing challenge to prevailing ethnocentric discourse. Particularly challenging in that his theatre of operations was the Arctic - where notions of what it meant to be British were formulated and reinforced - and, in later life, chose to do so in London.
Notes:

Unpublished thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of M. Phil. in Polar Studies.
