The Birkbeck School of Arts presents:

Environmental Futures: Oil, Ecology, Petrocultures

In the 21st century oil shapes our geopolitics and impacts upon the cost of day-to-day living. But what role does oil play within culture? This panel considers literature’s engagement with the oil economy and the opportunities for a participatory democratic citizenship that a cultural critique, and monitoring, of oil affords.
