Feb. 25 | Lynn Badia | Technologies of Abundance: On the Possibility of Unlimited Energy

On Tuesday, Februrary 25, 2020 from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m., Dr. Lynn Badia, Assistant Professor of English at Colorado State University, will give a talk entitled "Technologies of Abundance: On the Possibility of Unlimited Energy," in Haldeman 041. In her talk, Dr. Badia, a specialist in Environmental and Energy Humanities, will consider the questions: What would it mean for humanity to have a virtually unlimited energy source? How have the conditions of energy crisis also produced a discourse about energy abundance? Considering case studies of "free energy" technologies from the twentieth century and the present day, she will investigate how ideas about new energy infrastructures necessarily involves a particular social vision, whether acknowledged or not.

This talk is sponsored by the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society, the Revers Center for Energy at the Tuck School of Business, and the Dartmouth College Office of the Associate Dean for the Arts and Humanities, the Leslie Center for the Humanities, and Environmental Humanities.
