Environemental Histories of Resource Extraction in Africa

This webinar series reflects on the environmental histories of mining and oil drilling regions in Africa. It also reviews the various sources, such as literature, art and research fields like ethnography, that we can deploy to write these histories. The book talks will have a Q&A format.

All are welcome!
