Sighting Oil

On a related topic to the last – I was teaching on ‘resource wars’ this morning – Adrian Ivakhiv points to the current issue of Imaginations: Journal of Cross-Cultural Image Studies, a special issue on Sighting Oil. He writes:

The journal is housed at the University of Alberta, which makes it particularly well situated to critically observe the development of Alberta’s infamous Tar Sands. The issue features several critical as well as visual essays on oil (including one by Allan Stoekl on peak oil), tar sands and pipeline politics, visual representation, “dark ecology,” BP and its Gulf Oil Spill, and much else.
