Critical Environments

Tianna BrunoJake Kosek

It is widely believed that “the environment” is in crisis; that humankind is degrading, contaminating, and transforming the natural world in unprecedented and urgently dangerous ways. The evidence for these claims come from diverse sources and disciplines, and it ranges in scale from the cellular to the planetary and from the immediate present to the geological. Critical environments acknowledges the reality and importance of these ideas, but refuse to take them at face value. Nature, science, and difference are not simply inert objects, methods, and identities. Instead, Professors Jake Kosek and Tianna Bruno understand them as vibrant and contested elements of critical and justice-oriented geography. This talk explores lives and ecologies that emerge together with histories of capitalism, militarism, racism, colonialism, and sexuality.
