SCAR EXCOM 2017 Paper 15: Report from the SCAR History Group

SCAR History Expert Group, 2016-2017 Report

Agenda Item: 2.1.1

Report Author(s): Cornelia Lüdecke

Summary of activities from 2016-17 and any other important issues or factors:

In 2016 the SCAR History Expert Group organized session S34 on “Footprints in Antarctica, and Antarctica’s footprint: perspectives from history“, which comprised eight talks plus six additional posters during the SCAR Open Science Conference in Kuala Lumpur. Additionally the History EG produced a poster to highlight activities for the SCAR OSC and the Delegates Meeting.

A joint conference of the History and the Humanities and Social Sciences Expert Groups on “Depths and Surfaces: Understanding the Antarctic Region through the Humanities and Social Sciences” was held in Hobart (Tasmania) in July 2017, which included 75 talks in two to three parallel sessions and an art exhibition. We also discussed how to merge of both groups.
