    • History

Clare and Yves are joined by environmental historian Dr Alessandro (Sandro) Antonello, senior research fellow at Flinders University and author of The Greening of Antarctica: Assembling an International Environment (Oxford University Press, 2019). What’s a historian to do when their archive is disappearing before their very eyes? Sandro discusses his journey from his local parish records in year nine, to working in the ice that comprises the Antarctic. Sandro explores the relationship between humanity and science and reveals how he was caught up in a climate-denying Fox News storm. Most importantly, he reminds us never to “leave our own archive” behind in Antarctica.
