The department of Anthropology presents: Uncertainty in Motion: Rumors of a Proxy War in Late Industrial Baltimore

This talk will discuss South Baltimoreans debated a proposed incinerator. Those debates were manifestly about local land use, but rumors spread that something else was really going on. Opponents supposed the company behind the plant was secretly owned by a power-player in the waste-to-energy sector, while supporters swore opponents must be bankrolled by Big Landfill.

About the speaker:

Chloe Ahmann is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Cornell, studying the long afterlife of American industry.
