Podium - Robert McGhee


Archaeologist Robert McGhee presents a lecture entitled “The Last Imaginary Place: a Human History of the Arctic World,” at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Gatineau, Que., October 30, 2008.

Mr. McGhee’s lecture addresses ideas of the North that have been developed through centuries of travellers’ tales. He also explores the impact of scientific exploration on perceptions of the Arctic and its inhabitants.

This presentation is part of “Out of the Cold: The Roy Koerner Lectures,” a monthly lecture series focusing on scientific exploration. The series is organized in recognition of the International Polar Year and the 50th Anniversary of the Polar Continental Shelf Project.
