Event Details

The Department of International Relations invites you to its fourth event of the “Voices around the World: International Relations in Theory and Practice” series being organised on 18th February 2021. A guest session is being delivered by Cara Daggett on ‘Petro-Masculinity and Climate Defiance.’

Abstract: Far-right movements are on the rise worldwide, and many have embraced both misogynistic and anti-climate action positions. While these resentments are often treated separately, in this lecture, I will discuss their interconnections through the concept of petro-masculinity, which appreciates the historic role of fossil fuel systems in buttressing white patriarchal rule. Petro-masculinity also helps to clarify the appeal of climate defiance, an aggressive stance that I distinguish from the broader category of climate denial.
