Title: Of poles, pressmen, and the newspaper public: reporting the Scottish National Antarctic Expedition, 1902-1904 / Innes M. Keighren.
Author(s): Keighren, Innes M.
Date: 2005.
In: Scottish Geographical Journal. (2005.), Vol. 121(2) (2005)
Abstract: Uses contemporary press coverage to assess popular reaction to exploratory work of William Speirs Bruce, with particular reference to the 1902-04 Scottish National Antarctic Expedition. Gives overview of complex relationship between explorers and press during latter half of 19th century; examines degree to which particular cultures and styles of journalism influenced depiction of polar explorers and scientists; examines development of Bruce's scientific method; reflects on his treatment by local, national and international press during the expedition; and evaluates more parochial concerns which shaped reporting of Bruce and his work.
