Elizabeth Leane argues that polar newspapers function as a colonising device, 'imaginatively transforming the tiny, isolated, and provisional expedition community into an established colony' (27). Leane's analysis focuses on the 'Adelie Blizzard,' the unpublished newspaper of Douglas Mawson's Australasian Antartic Expedition of 1911-1914.
