Record #191037:

The true northwest passage: explorers in Anglo-Canadian nationalist narratives / Janice Cavell.

Title: The true northwest passage: explorers in Anglo-Canadian nationalist narratives / Janice Cavell.
Author(s): Cavell, Janice.
Date: 2010.
In: Northern Review. (2010.), Vol. 32 (2010)
Abstract: Discusses changes over time in "imagined geography" of Northwest Passage. Notes that, in 19th and early 20th centuries, Canadian historians showed little interest in Far North, but were much more fascinated by story of westward expansion (creating, e.g., romantic grand narrative celebrating explorers who mapped out path of Canadian Pacific Railway). Arctic exploration came to forefront of nationalist concerns only after concept of Canadian nationhood had become established.

Northern Review. Vol. 32 :5-34 (2010).
