FOSSIL CAPITAL AND REVOLUTIONARY AFFECT ON NATURAL GAS AND POLITICAL FANTASY IN BOLIVIA
Dr. Gustafson will explore the contradictions within a revolutionary government. Indigenous President Evo Morales leads a progressive Bolivian government which is largely funded through natural gas extraction. This provokes a range of deeply un-revolutionary impacts such as the displacement of indigenous populations and the degradation of the environment. The question of how these two contradictory patterns can be reconciled will be discussed.
