My research examines the cultural and environmental history of the modern North American Arctic. I am particularly interested in how southern Canadians and Americans perceived and represented the North, and how they interacted with norther people and environments. I am completing a book manuscript on modern cultures of northern exploration and travel, and have begun a new project on the working identities and cultures of fur trapping, as practiced by economic migrants to the North in the early twentieth century.
