"After a 2011 visit sparked my interest in this remote part of the world, I started considering the ways that Antarctica has made major contributions, both historically and today, to processes of globalization. Much like my main geographical area of study, sub-Saharan Africa, Antarctica receives little recognition for these contributions, either in popular media or globalization scholarship. So, I decided to take a closer look at the continent myself."
