ie.talks: Extractivism in Times of Crisis

Climate, Energy and Food

Hörsaal III, NIG
Universitätsstraße 7, 1010 Wien


Lecture and Discussion with Alberto Alonso-Fradejas & Thea Riofrancos


The climate and socioeconomic crises have sparked renewed global interest in natural resources. Especially in the context of climate change mitigation efforts, green technologies and renewable energy have emerged as increasingly attractive sites for capitalist investment. This is connected with questions of legitimation of extractive activities, the changing role of the state, new geopolitical constellations, and questions of social and ecological reproduction. In our hybrid ie-talks event on "Extractivism in Times of Crisis: Climate, Energy and Food", Alberto Alonso-Fradejas (Wageningen University) and Thea Riofrancos (Providence College) shed light on the multiple extractivisms in the context of current crisis dimensions.
