Episode 62: Carbon Democracy and Canadian History
At the 2018 annual meeting of the Canadian Historical Association in Regina, a panel of scholars in the emerging field of energy history spoke about Timothy Mitchell’s 2011 book, Carbon Democracy: Political Power in the Age of Oil and considered its applicability to Canadian history. They debated Mitchell’s ideas and sketched out new ways of thinking about Canadian history through the lens of energy.
This episode of the podcast features that panel.
