"Hidden Abodes: Politicizing Industrial Ecologies in the Anthropocene." Matt Huber, Assistant Professor of Geography at the Syracuse University Maxwell School  considers the environmental problems surrounding consumption.  We often think of “us” as individual consumers of resources and energy. Yet, the industrial sector is by far the largest consumer of energy, electricity, water, and other materials both in the United States and globally. Why do these geographies often escape our political/policy attention? This talk proposes a framework to examine the politics of industrial ecologies. As a case study, I examine the industrial nitrogen fertilizer industry and its immense demand for natural gas and significant carbon dioxide emissions.

Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly speaker series sponsored by PARCC-Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration. Follow us  @PARCCatMaxwell , tweet #ConvoInConflict.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
