DEI Seminar Series: Renewable Energy, Settler Colonialism and Poetic Resistance: Wind Farms in Western Sahara

1:00pm to 2:00pm, E245, Engineering Department, Dr Joanna Allan & Hamza Lakhal

In this joint seminar with the Centre for Cultural Ecologies, we will look at how the academy has explored how “dirty” energy has led to violence, environmental destruction and poverty. We know how the renewables sector, in some contexts, reflects neoliberal modes of power and can subsume social outcomes to economic ones. But we still lack a clear picture of how green energy is implicated in human rights abuses and colonialism in some settings.
