Gund Tea - Bindu Panikkar: Land as material, habitat and knowledge: Constructions of resource materialities in Bristol Bay, Alaska

Oct 27, 2017
12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Johnson House 101

This research examines the social, historical and political constitution of resource materialities and the contested process through which Bristol Bay has been claimed a resource environment. I examine the early permitting debates of Pebble Mine, a proposed industrial-scale mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska to understand the contemporary politics of defining and constructing dominant and alternative regimes of value by the state, private, social, and environmental groups.
