The Just Powers Podcast features readings and discussions of scholarly work focused on the pressing energy and environmental issues of our times.
The Just Powers Podcast highlights the work of feminist, decolonial, and critical scholars and thinkers focused on some of today’s most pressing ecological, social and political challenges.
As Sara Ahmed (2013) writes, citation practices are a “rather successful reproductive technology, a way of reproducing the world around certain bodies [and thus] the reproduction of a discipline can be the reproduction of these techniques of selection, ways of making certain bodies and thematics core to the discipline, and others not even part.”
Taking Ahmed’s above assertions seriously, the JP Podcast aims to highlight scholarly work by feminist and decolonial scholars in order to grapple with the challenges of late-stage petro-capitalism and shine a spotlight on voices that have been silenced or overwritten by dominant discourses. In this way, the Just Powers Podcast aims to share the important work of scholars interested in developing future imaginaries that exceed business-as-usual models of energy transition. What is possible, if we play seriously with ideas and work together to imagine new pathways forward?
The first three Series of JP Podcast feature a selection of recorded articles — ‘Read & Records’ (or ‘R&Rs’) — that that have informed both the thinking and practices of the Just Powers team, and that we hope can likewise inform the way others think about current energy transition issues.
Series I features a selection of articles focused on developing feminist and decolonial approaches to ecological issues.
Series II focuses on participatory and collaborative media and social media production and distribution as a way of disrupting mainstream approaches to communication and research for social change.
Series III focuses on the question of infrastructure and its role and impact for thinking through and acting on today’s pressing ecological, social, and political crises.
