Resource Conflicts in Latin America: Geographies of Oil, Gas, and Minerals
Dr. Penelope Anthias, Post-doctoral Fellow, University of Copenhagen
Limits to Decolonization: Indigeneity, Territory, and Hydrocarbon Politics in the Bolivian Chaco
This series will explore the social, economic, and ecological consequences of natural resource extractivism in Latin America. Speakers will trace the macro-economic demands for non-renewable finite resources in the region examining the ways resource extraction has altered the built environment and re-figured social and labor relations. Drawing on long-term, ethnographic research in Bolivia and Ecuador, the speakers also imagine and envision more environmentally and socially just futures.
