Sammanfattning (abstract):
This is a review of two books that deal with exploration and research in Greenland over the course of several historical periods. The focus is on the efforts to understand the character of the ice and its impact on human life, both of indigenous peoples and researchers over time. The first book highlights a little known episode of exploration in the late 19th century and the second is one of the otucome of a recent science studies program at Aarhus University. It throws considerable new light on Alfred Wegener's expedition and subsequent expeditions during the period of the Cold War and later. The program, entitled Exploring Greenland: Science and Technology in Cold War Settings, traces how politics and research in Greenland have been intertwined and how this inlfuenced research agendas and modes of multi-national collaboration.
