Political Ecologies Working Group  Add To Calendar

Dear Members of the Political Ecologies Working Group:

As some of you may know, we have an event occurring on November 1, 2019.  That event will be a Frontiers Workshop sponsored by the Institute of the Humanities.  The current title for the workshop is: “Can a River Be a Person? Indigenous Groups, Legal Theorists, and Marxists Confront Climate Change.”  We will be bringing a number of speakers to UIC. In order to prepare for the event we will be running a set of reading groups. Our first meeting will be Monday, February 25 from 4-6 at the Institute. Snacks will be provided. Since Elizabeth Povinelli will be a featured speaker, we are starting with selections from Elizabeth Povinelli’s Geontologies.  

If you have any questions, please direct them to Ralph Cintron, rcintron@uic.edu

We will be discussing selections from Elizabeth Povinelli’s Geontologies: A Requiem to Late Liberalism (Duke University Press, 2016)

Reading Selections: Chapters 1, “The Three Figures of Geontology,” and 7, “Late Liberal Geontopower” (Click here for PDF)
