As part of our Graduate Fellows Lunchtime Seminars, the Social Justice Centre welcomes a talk by Stephanie Eccles.

Title: "Making Animal Waste Essential: ‘Renewing’ Animal Agriculture through the Fraught Politics of Renewable Natural Gas Development"

Description: Stephanie’s research engages with political economy/ecology focusing on the links between energy and food systems, Discard Studies, and multispecies relations. Her dissertation research looks at how industrial animal agricultural waste is produced, managed, and turned into frontiers for capital, in particular for renewable energy projects, at two temporalities: the ordinary day and during disasters. Exploring issues of environmental (in)justice, extreme weather events in North Carolina and British Columbia, and the emerging industry for waste-to-energy projects in North Carolina, she grapples with the enduring waste problems produced by industrial animal agriculture and the proposed socio-ecological fixes. Stephanie conducts multispecies fieldwork that grounds practices of care. Her work is grounded on the broader political projects of transforming how we relate to each other and the nonhuman animal world to work towards a future that is abundantly just and kind.

Stephanie Eccles is a PhD student in the Department of Geography, Planning, and the Environment and a graduate fellow at the Social Justice Centre.

The talk will be followed by a commentary by Jan Dutkiewicz.

The talk will be hybrid, both in person and on zoom.
