Field Notes From Extractive Frontiers

The Center for Humans and Nature in Chicago recently featured an essay by former Visiting Fellow Thea Riofrancos (assistant professor of political science at Providence College) as part of a new series called, “How do we live respectfully with the land and with each other?” 

In her essay titled, “Field Notes From Extractive Frontiers,” Riofrancos takes the reader from the courtrooms of Ecuador to the lithium-rich salares of Chile to examine how anti-extractive movements might transform relationships between society and nature.
