About Vanessa Collingridge: Mapping Myths of Antarctica #FakeNews

The Great Southern Continent was one of the most intriguing and enduring geographical myths in the history of Western civilisation, and the goal of the first two voyages of Captain James Cook. This vast landmass was rumoured to be home to 50 million people and have riches to rival Asia!

In this lavishly-illustrated talk, Vanessa takes us on a voyage through time, space and the geographical imagination. Given the way this myth was propagated, Vanessa also provides skillful parallels with modern day 'Fake News'!

Venue: Appleton Tower, 11 Crichton Street, EH8 9LE Edinburgh

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Vanessa Collingridge: Mapping Myths of Antarctica #FakeNews are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
