ONLINE ACADEMIC READING
The three-minute story of 800,000 years of climate change with a sting in the tail

An excellent short summation on CO2 and climate change which reflects what I have discovered in other research
Media and Society (Fifth Edition)
by Michael O’Shaughnessy and Jane Stadler 2008
An excellent look into how we interact with media it’s affect on us. Very readable – a must read for anyone interested in media.
Fostering Sustainable Behaviour
by Doug McKenzie-Mohr
A very good introduction to using community-based social marketing as a device to motivate behaviour change in the context of sustainability. It acknowledges that individual knowledge of the need for behaviour change for the good of the environment does not necessarily lead to action. It argues that marketing to community groups creates a stronger stimulant for societal change. In many ways this acknowledges my own thought on “community-centric” (or people-centred) thinking as a key element in human-centred design.
Social Marketing to Protect the Environment – What works
by Doug McKenzie-Mohr, Nancy R.Lee, P.Wesley Schultz and Philip Kotler. 2012
Very similar to, but not as good as, “Fostering Sustainable Behaviour” (See above). Good case studies.
Childhood and Nature – Design Principles for Educators
by David Sobel 2008
Very focussed on guiding teachers wanting to structure learning experiences for school children about environmental and sustainability issues. Not particularly useful for my project specifically but did have a few transferable tidbits on ecophobia and transferring knowledge into behaviour.
Researching Social Life (4th Edition 2016)
Edited by Nigel Gilbert and Paul Stoneman
A good guide to research in general. Some chapters not very relevant to my project but a good overview on techniques.
Dispatches from Continent Seven: An anthology of Antarctic science
by Rebecca Priestley (2016)
An excellent overview of science in Antarctica form the earliest exploration to current projects with a bias toward Scott Base
Antarctica. The Big Ice
by Neville Peat
Published by Otago Museum as part of the 50th anniversary of Scott Base this is a concise, very easy read that covers a good proportion of “‘must knows’ about Antarctica. It’s the ‘bluffers guide’ to The Ice … but if you get grilled on any one topic you get caught out :-)
Life at the Extremes
ISBN 0 00 255946 3
An extremely interesting look at the effects of extreme conditions on the human mind and body. Obviously the chapters on heat and deep sea diving not so directly relevant.
View from the summit
by Sir Edmund Hillary
Only one chapter really relevant to Antarctica but a good first person take on the Trans Antarctica expedition of 1957
The worst journey in the world

South with Endurance:
Shackleton’s Antarctic Expedition 1914-1917. The photographs of Frank Hurley
Joanna Wright, Shane Murphy, Gael Newton and Michael Gray. 2001
ISBN 0670 91209 3
These photos sum up the “heroic age” best for me. Mostly black and white they are a diverse mix of ‘straight’ documentary, posed portraits and more ‘artistically’ composed shots.
Very good section “Pioneer of Polar Photography” (pages 232-241) by Michael Gray and Gael Newton, covers off the equipment and techniques used by Frank Hurley and Herbert Pointing. It also makes mention of Hurley “aesthetic” and broad attitude to experimentation. They quote Hurley as writing in an article in the June 1911 Australian Photo-Review that camera art was “not an exact representation of nature, and a picture is not a record of things in view”. This obviously refers to his darkroom retouching of images (page 238). This modification of images, sometimes in an effort to express the moment better and other times simply to improve the aesthetic, is also mentioned in the video listed below.
Frozen History: The legacy of Scott and Shacklenton
Photographs of Josef & Katharina Hoflehner
ISBN 3 9501510 2 8
Stunning black and white shots of the historic huts. Although both are good, I prefer them to Ussher’s (below) simply because they are more graphically composed. Ussher’s are more textural and studies in a limited colour palette.
Still Life: Inside the Antarctic huts of Scott and Shackleton
Photography of Jane Ussher
ISBN 978 1 74196 739 5
Introduction by Nancy Spector
ISBN 978 0 8478 4091 5
A bit left field in terms of research for this project “Gregory Crewdson. Brief Encounters”
by Ben Shapiro was a great inspiration into a filmic approach to stills production
Reframing Visual Social Science
Cambridge University Press
All a bit to “academic” for me. I only skim read it but found it verbose and focussed to heavily on using visual tools for research rather than for the communication of science.
Photography and Science
ISBN: 978 1 86189 399 4
An interesting look at the relationship between science and photography. In particular some good insights into the early perception of photography as more science than art and the gradual acceptance of it as an art form in it’s own right including the twist as “scientific photography” is used as inspiration/appropriation by contemporary artists (an example being our own Anne Noble’s use of the electron microscope)
The lost Photographs of Captain Scott
David M. Wilson
Interesting in terms of being essentially snapshots form Scott’s own camera while on the Terra Nova expedition. Far to say there is a reason that Herbert Pointing was the offical photographer – these are often pretty “atmospheric” or blurry depending on your point of view..
The Blue Privilege: The last of the tattooed Maori Women
