Cara Daggett (Virginia Tech) “Petro-masculinity and Climate Defiance”
Far-right movements are on the rise worldwide, and many have embraced both misogynistic and anti-climate action positions. While these resentments are often treated separately, in this webinar, I will discuss their interconnections through the concept of petro-masculinity, which appreciates the historic role of fossil fuel systems in buttressing white patriarchal rule. Petro-masculinity also helps to clarify the appeal of climate defiance, an aggressive stance that I distinguish from the broader category of climate denial.
Ahead of this lecture, you are warmly welcome to join the new Entanglements Book Club, where we will be reading selections from Cara Daggett’s The Birth of Energy (2019).

Prof. dr. Leonie Cornips
How a Dairy Cow Relates to Other Cows and Humans: The Opening of a Conversation
This lecture will focus on how the dairy cow within the power dynamics of industrial farming, makes social meaning in her barn by relating to other cows and entering human(s) via a processually emergent quality arising from multiple assemblages of human and nonhuman elements, including material things, artefacts and spaces (Cornips & van den Hengel, in press).
