The McMurdo Dry Valleys are the largest ice free region of the Antarctic continent.  Over the past few years, members of the CSU history department have been working with a team of scientists to ask how historical research can contribute to our understanding of environmental change over time in this unique region.  With a focus on the construction of a historical photo archive of the McMurdo Dry Valleys, this presentation will present three different perspectives on the challenges and opportunities of doing historical research in one of the world’s most extreme environments.
