I. (Iva) Pesa, PhD
Assistant Professor Contemporary History
African history (particularly Zambia, South Africa, and Nigeria); environmental history; social history; oral history. I study the environmental history of mining and oil drilling in Africa. My aim is to explain why people respond differently to severe pollution and environmental degradation. To answer these questions, I rely on oral history, literary analysis, political ecology, and approaches from art studies. Besides being the coordinator of the MA History track Un/Sustainable Societies in Past, Present, and Future, I am a member of the Faculty Council of Arts and the chair of the Young Arts Network (YARN) for 2022-2023.
