CfP: Black and Green? Towards an Environmental History of the Oil Industry
Conference organized by the RCC and Maastricht University.
Bringing together scholars working on various aspects of oil (and gas) and environmental histories— black and green—this workshop aims to unpack the concept of “greenwashing.” It aims to engage with the existing literature on the environmental history of oil, while opening future directions for research collaborations on the environmental strategies pursued by oil companies themselves. The workshop is jointly run by the NWO-funded Vici project “Managing Scarcity and Sustainability: The Oil Industry, Environmentalism and Alternative Energy in the Age of Scarcity, 1968-1986” (PI Cyrus Mody, Maastricht University) and the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, Munich.
