Corporate Mapping Project Summer Institute, May 2021

Corporate Mapping Project | Corporate Mapping Project

A graduate-level course on corporate power, fossil capital and climate crisis

Corporate power • fossil capital • climate crisis

A three week-long course open to social science graduate students from across Canada

May 10-28, 2021 • University of Victoria

Join us for the Corporate Mapping Project’s third summer institute, offered by the University of Victoria Department of Sociology.

The course is open to graduate students in social science disciplines at any Canadian university (for students at universities participating in the Western Deans Agreement, the course may be eligible for transfer credit). The Institute will be delivered either entirely online or in a hybrid mode with some students participating in person and others online. Students not physically present in Victoria, BC, will be able to take the course.

This three week-long graduate seminar combines the sociology of corporate power with the political economy of fossil capital and the political ecology of the climate crisis. The Institute will focus extensively on the search for solutions, beyond business-as-usual, to the deepening climate crisis. The course will be directed by Dr. William Carroll, but will feature presentations, guest lectures and extensive participation from members of the Corporate Mapping Project network, including representatives from environmental, social justice, labour and First Nations groups.

Space is limited — RSVP by October 30 to secure your spot.
