Notes

INTRODUCTION ‘I WANT TO GO TOO!’
1
The artist Nel Law, who went as a guest of the Danish shipping company Lauritzen, with the Antarctic Division Director and expedition leader, Dr Philip Law, her husband: Elizabeth Chipman, Women on the Ice: A History of Women in the Far South, Melbourne University Press, Melbourne, 1986, pp. 84–85.

The majority of the interviews took place between June 1994 and October 1995, though they continued after that, with the last in February 2000.

There are 39 acceding states to the Treaty, representing ‘the overwhelming majority of humanity’: A. Herr, H.R. Hall and M.G. Hayward, ‘Antarctica's future: Symbols and reality’ in Antarctica's Future: Continuity or Change? eds R.A. Herr, H.R. Hall and M.G. Hayward, Tasmanian Government Printing Office, Hobart, 1990, p. 12.

International collaboration for scientific purposes, and for the protection and conservation of the Antarctic environment, is prescribed under international treaties: Antarctic Treaty Act 1960; Antarctic Treaty (Environment Protection) Act 1980.

Chipman, Women on the Ice; Tim Bowden, The Silence Calling: Australians in Antarctica 1947–97, Allen & Unwin, Sydney, 1997.
5
This was enabled by two research grants and a period of study leave.
6
The path was not easy and Robyn's efforts have been largely unacknowledged. Dr Peta Colebatch and Dr Louise Crossley, members of the Australian Antarctic Foundation Board, were also involved in making the conference happen. They all deserve warm thanks.
