Description

Jessica Dempsey, University of British Columbia
“Is there time for caribou? The paradox of liberal environmentalism”

Jess Dempsey is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of British Columbia. Her first book Enterprising Nature (Wiley-Blackwell, 2016) traces attempts to turn biodiversity conservation into an economically rational—even profitable—set of policies and practices. Her current research foci include: the intersection between return-generating finance and conservation, the relationship between capitalism and biological non-human life, and political economic theorization of extinction and ecological impoverishment.

This event is part of the Duck Family Colloquium series. The Center for Environmental Politics organizes a monthly colloquium series on environmental politics, policy, and governance.
