[STS Lunch Seminar] Endangered Species Politics // Caleb Scoville
Oct 23, 2020, 12 – 1:15pm EDT
Legal protections of the delta smelt, a small endangered fish found only in the center of California's water system, have made the species a central player in the American West's so-called "water wars." In this talk, Caleb Scoville (Tufts Sociology) follows the dynamic interplay of disparate conceptions of nature immanent in extractive infrastructure, science, law and the public sphere to show how environmental change mediates social conflicts, often in unexpected ways.
