Thoughts in Progress
In April, I'm excited to participate in a Symposium on Sites of Security and Insecurity, at University of Colorado, Boulder, as part of paper Julie Sze and I are co-writing for special issue of the journal English Language Notes. In the paper, we think about environmental racism through the breath, and the constriction of breathing, in relation to both police violence and pollution in US cities today.
I've started to think about the implications of sea level rise for hazardous waste sites in coastal cities like San Francisco, through a blog post for a symposium on Toxic Exposure, Entanglements, and Endurance.
Here are some other web-based writings:
Geographies of Sustainability in the San Francisco Bay Area, AAG Newsletter, September 2015
"Waste-to-Energy", Discard Studies Compendium
“Waste Conversion and Environmental Justice in California,” with Tracy Perkins, in “Critical Sustainabilities: Analyzing Competing Discourses of Urban Development in Northern California”.
A 20-min talk on environmental justice at the Hunters Point Shipyard at a symposium titled Producing Waste, Producing Space, last March. Here is the video - I begin speaking 22:40 minutes into the session (but don't miss the great talk on wastelands by Vittoria Di Palma at the beginning).
