Environmental Determinism (essay)
Take a look behind the scenes of Arctic Noir.
Setting is key in genre fiction, and even more so when the story is set in the remote and often inhospitable Arctic.
This contextual essay accompanies Christoffer Petersen's The Ice Star, and explores the historical nature of environmental determinism in classic works such as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Jack London's stories, and how it can still be seen in modern fiction.
This essay is perfect for students of noir fiction.
