  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: This special issue goes to press in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Confronted with a global health, social, and economic crisis unprecedented in our lifetime, we are made painfully aware of the tight interconnections of the Anthropocene and reminded of the need to always consider nature, medicine, data, and economics in conjunction with history, politics, affect, and ethics. As we face the consequences of decades of neoliberal policies and practices exacerbating the crisis, the pandemic is also bringing new meanings to borders, mobility, and distance and challenging us to ask new and difficult questions about nations, globalism, and civic life. While we never imagined that we would be living in such a scenario ... Read More

  • Perpetual Motion: Energy and American Studies
    • Abstract: From early 2016, when construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline began, through February 2017, when the last protectors were forcibly removed by law enforcement officials, the eyes of Americans (and the world) were riveted on a spectacle of energy politics that played directly into established cultural narratives about extraction and its victims. On one side: Energy Transfer Partners, the pipeline construction and management corporation (and its financial backers in the US and Canadian oil and banking industries), who were eager to connect the shale oil freed by fracking from the Bakken formation in North Dakota to existing distribution infrastructure in Illinois, through which it would enter the energy networks of ...

  • Plantation Energy: From Slave Labor to Machine Discipline
    • Abstract: [Slavery] reduces man to a mere machine.Kevin Beasley, A view of a landscape: A cotton gin motor, 2012–2018 (detail), Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, December 15, 2018–March 10, 2019, © Kevin Beasley. Photo: Ron Amstutz, image courtesy the artist and Casey Kaplan, New York.World-weary and reanimated, a cotton gin motor could be seen spinning inside a glass vitrine, its expected industrial roar absorbed by anechoic foam lining the base of its enclosure. The machine was the centerpiece of Kevin Beasley's A view of a landscape: A cotton gin motor, 2012–18 (fig. 1) on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, in spring 2019. Inside the case, Beasley placed a dozen microphones relaying the noise of ... Read More

  • International Powers: Energy and Progress in Dark Princess and Black
    • Abstract: Toward the end of his visit to Liberia as special envoy in 1924, an enthusiastic W. E. B. Du Bois reflected on the political future of the African continent: "Africa is the spiritual Frontier of human kind," he writes:Oh the wild and beautiful adventures of its taming! But oh! The cost thereof—the endless, endless cost! Then will come a day—an old and ever, ever young day when there will spring in Africa a civilization without coal, without noise, where machinery will sing and never rush and roar, and where men will sleep and think and dance and lie prone before the rising sons, and women will be happy.Fantasizing about a time after the age of imperial misadventure has ended, Du Bois pictures a self-determined ...

  • Community Solar as Energy Reparations: Abolishing Petro-Racial Capitalism
           in New Orleans
    • Abstract: In a June 2019 interview on WHIV community radio in New Orleans, Logan Burke, executive director of the Louisiana Alliance for Affordable Energy, detailed the work underway at the New Orleans City Council to authorize community solar,1 which means "that rather than depending on the utility itself to procure renewables, a community can invest in and own solar resources and other renewable resources and reduce their bills, lock[ing] in the cost of that energy over time." Burke identified the developments in New Orleans as a historic opportunity to bring policy innovations that work toward energy equity to the US South, as the rule is "the first community solar opportunity that anybody has seen in our ...

  • The Front Lines of Energy Policy: The Coal Mining Workplace and the
           Politics of Security in the American Century
    • Abstract: In April 1977 Jimmy Carter detailed the energy crisis facing the nation in a televised address. Many Americans doubted a "real" energy crisis even existed. Carter, however, insisted that the crisis was not only real but a severe, long-range, even existential threat to the nation. To meet the challenge, he argued, would demand a response that was "the moral equivalent of war."1 Conjuring war only two years after the final withdrawal of American troops from Vietnam was a fraught proposition. If the recent past weighed heavily, the language of war nonetheless invoked a longer history of entanglements between domestic energy use and war making, and a more contemporary but nonetheless ubiquitous political culture that ...

  • Anatomic Bombs: The Sexual Life of Nuclearism, 1945–57
    • Abstract: An atomic reaction / Has not the attraction / You'll find in a beautiful girl.Late one summer afternoon in 1957, in the swirling dust east of the Nevada Test Site (NTS), a Las Vegas dancer who used the stage name Lee Merlin donned a swimsuit covered with a fluffy cotton mushroom cloud and posed for photographs. In some shots, she twined her hands up in her curly blond hair. In others, she extended her long arms up toward the sky in a gesture of happy triumph, her mouth open in a wide smile. Newspapers across the country reproduced her image, declaring Merlin—in language that combined sexual desire with brute survival—"the girl" who men "would most like to survive the A-Bomb."1Lee Merlin posed as "Miss Atomic Bomb," ...

  • Intimacies of the Atom: On Rocks and Decolonization in the Work of Leslie
           Marmon Silko
    • Abstract: In an effort to promote domestic uranium extraction in the late 1940s, the United States Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) made public its "orebuying schedule" and successfully incentivized aggressive prospecting in the sandstone-rich lands of the Southwest.1 In 1951 the Anaconda Mining Company identified a huge uranium deposit underneath the Laguna Pueblo village of Paguate in New Mexico.2 By 1958 Anaconda's Jackpile mine had grown to become the largest open-pit uranium mine in the United States, supplying much of the raw material for a period of great nuclear exuberance. On the one hand, the AEC was rushing to build up a national armory in the early years of the Cold War; on the other, following President Dwight D. ... Read More

  • Oil, Water, Lightning: Indigenous Posthumanism and Energy Futures in
           Elizabeth LaPensée's Thunderbird Strike
    • Abstract: In 2016 thousands of water protectors gathered at Standing Rock Reservation attempting to halt the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. A year later, the completed pipeline had already leaked five times and is likely leaking now.1 The Standing Rock Sioux nation and other Indigenous nations affected by pipelines continue to fight the expansion of these pipeline networks, most recently in the violent occupation of Wet'suwet'en territory by the RCMP in service of the TransCanada Coastal GasLink pipeline. For these activists, water is worth protecting even when it has already been polluted with leaking oil. Protecting the future even when these futures are contaminated adds an important dimension to discussions ... Read More

  • Lotuses in Muddy Water: Fracked Gas and the Hare Krishnas at New
           Vrindaban, West Virginia
    • Abstract: Each morning before the sun rises, devotees of the International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) in New Vrindaban gather in a dimly lit temple to chant the mahamantra to Krishna. As the residents of this remote religious commune in West Virginia's northern panhandle chant in unison, their voices rising and falling over the hourlong service, robed worshippers offer a series of objects to an image of Krishna to stir up their lord's love for the Earth. The flame of a ghee lamp is waved before the image, offering Krishna the pleasure of warmth and light produced from the milk of the community's sacred cows. Then the lamps are carried to each of the devotees, who, one by one, briefly hold their hands over the ... Read More

  • The Nation as Energy: Imagining Society through Energy Intensity
    • Abstract: The image above, published by the International Energy Agency, claims to map the world's total production and consumption of energy in multifarious states and materials as they flow from and to innumerable origins and destinations. Although the diagram includes sources from wind to coal to geothermal heat, the common unit of measurement—the Mtoe—converts this plurality into a single unit deemed most accessible for thinking energy today: "Million tonnes of oil equivalent." This global view of energy flow and translation demonstrates how extensively today's energy topologies, or "energyscapes," have been analyzed, mapped, and imagined in the particular terms of the current fossil fuel infrastructure.1 Research ...

  • Petrodocumentary and the Remaking of New Deal Culture
    • Abstract: In 1942 Assistant Attorney General Thurman W. Arnold launched an investigation into Standard Oil of New Jersey (SONJ)'s relationship with the German petrochemical company IG Farben. Not only had SONJ profited from their association, he argued, but the corporations' agreements were depriving the United States of badly needed synthetic rubber during the war. Arnold appeared before the Senate Committee on National Defense, after which then senator Harry Truman told a reporter "I think this approaches treason." As the war progressed, new revelations piled up indicating that SONJ had allowed Germany to gain a wartime advantage.1 Opinion polls reflected this scandal, showing, among other things, that Standard Oil was the ...
