Fashioned in the North showcases stories of images, photographers, publications and institutions that have attracted minimal attention outside the local Nordic academic community. The authors of the book examine the reasons for, and implications of this under­exposure – to use a photographic metaphor. The domain of fashion photography studies is widened here and the texts chal­lenge often taken ­for ­granted ideas of centre and peri­phery in the discipline. The hybridity of this approach adds new nuances that enrich the knowledge in the field. The contributors discuss fashion photography as a trans­ national phenomenon, a material object, as medium and part of a media system, and as the result of archival systems and history writings. They show how in depth studies of this kind can offer so much more than focusing on but a few agents, iconic images, individual or periodic style. Indeed, case studies like these serve as a prism through which we can reveal cultural, social, economic and ideological aspects of society as these are reflected in fashion photography.

During the long twentieth century, explorers went in unprecedented numbers to the hottest, coldest, and highest points on the globe. Taking us from the Himalaya to Antarctica and beyond, Higher and Colder presents the first history of extreme physiology, the study of the human body at its physical limits. Each chapter explores a seminal question in the history of science, while also showing how the apparently exotic locations and experiments contributed to broader political and social shifts in twentieth-century scientific thinking. Unlike most books on modern biomedicine, Higher and Colder focuses on fieldwork, expeditions, and exploration, and in doing so provides a welcome alternative to laboratory-dominated accounts of the history of modern life sciences. Though centered on male-dominated practices—science and exploration—it recovers the stories of women’s contributions that were sometimes accidentally, and sometimes deliberately, erased. Engaging and provocative, this book is a history of the scientists and physiologists who face challenges that are physically demanding, frequently dangerous, and sometimes fatal, in the interest of advancing modern science and pushing the boundaries of human ability.
