*Energy humanities: a postgraduate workshop with Prof. Dominic Boyer and
A/Prof. Cymene Howe*

*TIME/DATE/LOCATION: Monday 2nd December, 12:00pm-3:00pm, Deakin Downtown,
Melbourne, VIC, Australia*

In this workshop, we orient our discussion of energy humanities through the
recently published duograph *Wind and Power in the Anthropocene*, comprised
of two volumes *Energopolitics <https://www.dukeupress.edu/energopolitics>*
(Boyer) and *Ecologics <https://www.dukeupress.edu/ecologics>* (Howe).
Based on a collaborative research project, the texts analyze the
complexities of wind power development and energy transitions in Oaxaca,
Mexico, with implications extending elsewhere. Issues of indigenous
sovereignty and land, transnational capital and local political legacies,
as well as philosophical meditations on how wind can be captured, monetized
or objectified all come into play in the complex infrastructural and
sociopolitical manoeuvres required within energy transitions. The workshop
will focus on these and parallel issues in energy humanities. Participants
will be expected to read 2 chapters from *Energopolitics *and *Ecologics*
prior to the workshop.

PhD/HDR candidates interested in attending the workshop should contact
Timothy Neale (t.neale at deakin.edu.au) with a 150-word blurb about their
research before 15 October 2019.
