I’m very happy to have Russell Potter, author of Arctic Spectacles, give us his views of the current search for missing British explorer Sir John Franklin. Russell’s impressive book Arctic Spectacles: The Frozen North in Visual Culture, 1818-1885 came out last year with the University of Washington Press. He has also recently been profiled by the PBS series NOVA which aired the program Arctic Passage on the Franklin search. If this blog post whets your appetite for more, check out Russell’s website and Google “knol” on Arctic Exploration.
