Passenger Security and Spacetime: Touring the Northwest Passage in the Wake of Colonialism and Climate Change

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Crime, Media and Culture book series (PSCMC)


This chapter examines the disappearing Arctic as a criminal anthroposcene, one frozen in the imagination by Holocene-bred understandings of (in)security even as it is currently being reshaped by the effects of global warming in the Anthropocene. Due to the rapid melting of ice, the Northwest Passage has become increasingly accessible to Arctic cruise ships. For affluent passengers, the Arctic is staged as a site of last chance tourism and plotted in itineraries as a series of overlapping chronotopes of (in)security. Because such contemporary Arctic expeditions follow in the wake of European explorers, these chronotopes emerge at the intersection of colonialism and climate change. Aboard the cruise ship, passenger security is prioritized in ways that can introduce new insecurities or amplify existing ones for local Arctic inhabitants.
