Energy in the Americas Book Launch
Join Dr. Amelia Kiddle (Associate Professor of Latin American history at the University of Calgary) and Dr. Petra Dolata (Associate Professor of Energy History) and the Energy In Society Working Group at the Calgary Institute for the Humanities, for the launch of Energy in the Americas: Critical Reflections on Energy and History, the second book in the University of Calgary Press’s Energy Histories, Cultures, and Politics series.

Bringing the diverse energy histories of North and South American nations into dialogue with one another, this edited volume presents an integrated hemispheric framework for understanding the historical constructions of contemporary debates on the role of energy in society. Rejecting past truisms, this collection historicizes the experiences of producers and policymakers and assesses the interplay between environmental, technological, political, and ideological influences within and between countries and continents.

Join the authors in discussing the book’s contributions and celebrating its publication. Dr. Dolata will introduce the series, followed by Dr. Kiddle who will summarize the book’s significance. Dr. Pablo Heidrich (Associate Professor of Global and International Studies, Carleton University) and Dr. Tyler Priest (Associate Professor of History and Geography, University of Iowa) will briefly discuss the promises and potential pitfalls of thinking about energy hemispherically within the context of their own contributions to the volume and broader debates in the field, followed by a general discussion with the contributors and the audience.
