Record #207238:

Feminine poles: Josephine Diebitsch-Peary's and Jennie Darlington's polar narratives / Heidi Hansson.

Title: Feminine poles: Josephine Diebitsch-Peary's and Jennie Darlington's polar narratives / Heidi Hansson.
Author(s): Hansson, Heidi.
Date: 2009.
Publisher: Umeå, Sweden: Umeå University and Royal Skyttean Society
In: Cold matters : cultural perceptions of snow, ice and cold. (2009.),
Abstract: Examines two female narratives about life in Arctic and Antarctic: My Arctic Journal: a year among ice-fields and Eskimos by Josephine Diebitsch Peary (1893) and Jennie Darlington's My Antarctic honeymoon: a year at the bottom of the world (1956). Both women described their lives in polar regions according to prevailing gender ideologies. Darlington concluded that Antarctic should remain exclusively masculine region while Peary, although conceding that Arctic is necessarily chiefly masculine environment, considered that women could live there comfortably if civilised European customs and conventional social codes were introduced. Texts appear to be gender-coded to meet perceived reader expectations.
