Antarctica is often thought of as a wilderness, both by people who have never been to the continent and people who have worked and lived there for years. Writer Caitlin Scarano wants to challenge the very notion of wilderness. Scarano, who received her doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in December, spent four weeks at McMurdo Station and its surroundings. While there, she met with members of the McMurdo community to gather their stories and hear their impressions of the southernmost continent.
