Description

Jessica Dempsey, University of British Columbia
“Social risk, private gains in green capitalism? The case of for-profit conservation finance”

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. This series is made possible by the generous support of Gary and Susan Duck, UW alumni and long-standing benefactors of the department. Susan passed away in December 2015 after a prolonged illness. We miss her a lot.
