Abstract: I am looking at how Antarctic exploration functions as a belated extension of the colonial imagination. This is important because the British nation has attempted to use polar exploration as iconic of their larger enterprise, an embodiment of adventure and science untarnished by the horrors of empire. Using critical theory concerning mapping impulses, literature and travel writing, I work through The Worst Journey in the World, a travel narrative that stands as a paradigmatic example of polar exploration.
