Pioneers of scientific cooperation: about memory, oblivion and representations of the past / Noemí M. Girbal-Blacha.

Title: Pioneers of scientific cooperation: about memory, oblivion and representations of the past / Noemí M. Girbal-Blacha.
Author(s): Girbal-Blacha, Noemí M.
Date: 2007.
Publisher: London: Taylor and Francis
In: Antarctic Peninsula and Tierra del Fuego : 100 years of Swedish-Argentine scientific cooperation at the end of the world. Proceedings of "Otto Nordenskjöld's Antarctic expedition of 1901-1903 and Swedish scientists in Patagonia: a symposium", held in Buenos Aires, La Plata and Ushuaia, Argentina, March 2-7, 2003. (2007.),
Abstract: Examines way in which social groups interpret past events in relation to present needs, with particular reference to scientific reports from Nordenskjoüld's 1901-03 Antarctic expedition and role of concrete political initiatives put forward by ruling classes in development of scientific knowledge. Reviews formation of modern nation of Argentina, and role of Argentine government and Navy in supporting expedition in return for scientific data and zoological collections; rescue of expedition by Argentine corvette Uruguay; and strengthening of Argentine presence in Antarctica when President Julio A. Roca took possession of meteorological station established on South Orkney Islands by Bruce's 1902-04 expedition. Discusses lack of recognition for expeditioners, indebtedness in place of reward, present-day recognition of role of expeditions of Heroic Age and use of history and ideas of heritage to support national identity.
