Nineteenth Century Group Symposium: Extraction, Industry, and Labor in the Global Nineteenth Century
When: Friday, November 03, 2023, 04:00pm
Where: Academic Building West Room 6051
Contact Lucina Schwartz, Emily Anderson, and Rachel Glassman
This year's Nineteenth Century Group roundtable explores the relationship between extractive industries and the discourses, narratives, and literatures of the global nineteenth century. It will feature presentations by Michael Tondre (Stony Brook), Tamara Fernando (Stony Brook), and Mattie Armstrong-Price (Fordham), and a response by Liz Miller (UC Davis). Together, we hope to reflect on the colonial history of extractivism and its devastating legacy in our current climate and infrastructural crises.
