Abstract

ICEBERGS HAVE TAKEN ON DRAMATIC NEW MEANINGS IN THE ANTHROPOCENE. THEY HAVElong been used as metaphors for an immensity present but unseen, but in theage of anthropogenic warming they also metonymically suggest unstableicesheets, shrinking glaciers and rising seas. Outside of scientific discourse,however, icebergs tend to be considered as a collective, interesting both in theirsymbolism and materiality, but rarely treated as individual objects with their ownhistories and futures.
