This network will provide a forum for scholars interested in energy history broadly defined. This interdisciplinary field seeks to integrate the political, cultural, scientific, business, environmental, and diplomatic history of energy production and consumption.
Thank you, Dr. Marta Musso, for this thorough and engaging conference report. Such a precis is enormously useful in bringing the conversation to those of us not at this meeting.
Several major bodies have recommended reduction in voluntary travel to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions. I sigh at these implications, but think our academic protocols may indeed need to change.
I would like to thank Marta Musso for taking the time to put together this thorough and engaging conference report for H-Energy!
Two issues that I would like to raise for H-Energy subscribers that were discussed at this conference but not defined, are the concepts of the “oil curse” and “oil imperialism” itself. I am wondering if H-Energy subscribers would be willing to offer their definitions of one or both of these concepts, and indicate if they are useful or even accurate terms to use as modes of analysis?
