Joanna Price is a Visiting Research Fellow at the Research Institute for Literature and Cultural History, Liverpool John Moores University. She has written about affect and place, particularly in relation to trauma, memory and mourning. Her recent publications include articles about Antarctica and ‘the traumatic sublime’ and affective landscapes in Antarctic travel memoirs.
She is currently writing an ‘affective biography’ of R.F. Scott’s Terra Nova hut. This piece explores how, through the life-writing of Apsley Cherry-Garrard and others, the hut is inscribed with a history of feelings. It will form part of a book about how, through literature, art and photography, the material spaces of Antarctica become affective both locally and globally.
