Aesthetic Economies of Growth; Energy, Value, and the Work of Culture After Oil offers a cultural history of energy after the industrialization of fossil fuels. My argument is that the political economy of fossil fuels, and the climate change it generates, is anchored to energy’s aesthetic...
Arctic Oil, Arctic Change: A Threefold Framework for Evaluating Pressures for Rural Oil and Gas Extraction in Alaska and the Northwest TerritoriesDownload
Oil has driven migration, community growth, and governance of the last century in the North. Today, as Arctic global warming surpasses 1°C with “profound consequences” (IPCC, 2019) for the North, the relationship between oil and climate change cannot be ignored. In light of this tension, this...
Characterization of magnetic nanoparticles as contrast agents and their application for quantitative magnetic susceptibility monitoring of the waterflooding of heavy oil in real timeDownload
Waterflooding is one enhanced oil recovery process used in heavy oil reservoirs such as at Cold Lake in North-Eastern Alberta. However, little has been published in terms of imaging heavy oil waterfloods, mainly due to the similar densities of water and heavy oil, which makes it difficult to...
Due to the extensive usage of caustics and increased level of water recycling, the inevitable increase in salinity of recycle process water is a growing challenge in the current water-based bitumen extraction process. The present work concerns about how salinity affects bitumen recovery from...
Establishing the anti-cancer effects of unsaturated fatty acids and a novel oil on human breast cancer cellsDownload
N-3 and n-6 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic (CLA) acid have been known to inhibit breast cancer cell growth, however, effects on normal cells and of single and mixtures of n-3 and n-6 pathway intermediates have not been thoroughly investigated. The objective of this thesis was to determine...
Federalism and Natural Resource Management: A Comparative Study of Intergovernmental Conflict over Oil and Gas in Canada and NigeriaDownload
How does federalism affect oil conflict between governments in federations? Systematic theory-driven answers to this question are scarce, both in the comparative federalism and resource curse literatures. My dissertation bridges this research gap by comparing intergovernmental conflicts over oil...
In 2009, against the backdrop of halted land claim negotiations and increasing oil extraction from Lubicon traditional territory, a challenge was brought against the Lubicon custom election code. The challenge triggered a response from band members, a response later dismissed by Indian and...
This thesis is a multi-modal exploration of the photographer-researcher as a methodological opportunity to gain multiple, collaborative and collective perspectives on living in relation to the Alberta oil sands zone of North America. Using participatory-photography with youth, this thesis is one...
SSHRC Awarded IG 2013: The character of contemporary life depends fundamentally on oil -- an accessible, easy to store, easy to transport, and rich source of energy that has created the material conditions for manufacturing economies, global trade, large-scale human population growth,...
