“Texas oil giant Kinder Morgan has been threatening to destroy our lands, waters, culture and spirit by poisoning our territory, and wrecking the climate that sustains us all, with its dangerous Trans Mountain pipeline. Since this pipeline was first conceived, Tsleil-Waututh members have been protecting our territory from proposed oil flowing through our lands, and tankers intruding into our Inlet. Now, we are asking you to stand with us in our defence of the lands and waters. Our members, spiritual leaders, and youth will be on the land practicing our culture and spirit as we have for time immemorial. We will use our presence to stop Kinder Morgan.”

Date: Tuesday March 20, 2018, 7:00PM
Place: Joseph and Rosalie Segal Centre – Room 1400-1430
Reception immediately following in Teck Gallery
Fossil capital – commodified energy from extracted carbon – has been the basis for capitalism’s rise as a globalized way of life, now threatening the health of the Earth’s living systems. In the same era that climate crisis has become increasingly palpable, the emergence of ‘communicative capitalism’ has offered new means of persuasion to fossil capital and its allies, but also its critics. In this lecture I survey the contemporary situation in Canada with an eye toward prospects for a transition to energy democracy.
Dr. Carroll’s research interests are in the areas of the political economy of corporate capitalism, social movements and social change, and critical social theory and method. A member of the Sociology Department at the University of Victoria since 1981, and founding Director of the interdisciplinary program in Social Justice Studies, his books include Expose, Oppose, Propose: Alternative Policy Groups and the Struggle for Global Justice, A World to Win (with Kanchan Sarker), The Making of a Transnational Capitalist Class, Corporate Power in a Globalizing World, Corporate Power and Canadian Capitalism, Remaking Media (with Bob Hackett), Critical Strategies for Social Research and Organizing Dissent. He currently co-directs “Mapping the power of the carbon-extractive corporate resource sector,” an interdisciplinary partnership of several universities and civil-society organizations which traces various modalities of corporate power and resistance within the global political economy, focusing on fossil capital based in western Canada.
