Targeting Colonialism, Socio-Spatial Stigmatization and Exploitation in the Quest for Environmental Justice

Professor Tamara Steger

Environmental Sciences Faculty research seminar with Professor Tamara Steger

Environmental justice scholarship has shed increasing light on the dynamics of persistent environmental injustices, particularly in the US, such as racial capitalism and settler colonialism. These processes get us closer to understanding how environmental injustices come about and what we are up against in our efforts to rectify them. To capture the terrain of such dynamics, I propose an analytical framework: colonialisms, socio-spatial stigmatization and exploitation to bring these processes further out of the shadows.
