Abstract

As a death row for icebergs, Iceberg Alley is a site where melting icebergs are transformed into nonhuman death spectacles for sightseeing tourists and into bottled luxury water for sophisticated consumers. By examining how vibrant, icy nonhumans are produced for and consumed by tourists, this chapter investigates iceberg consumption as an emerging criminal anthroposcene, one shaped by dark tourism, as well as a desire for natural purity. Off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, icebergs are hunted and devoured in ways that conceal the environmental costs of their cultural commodification, even as those costs are contributing to an escalation of the ecological harms on display.
