Oceans of Oil: Moby-Dick, Energy, and the Environmental Humanities
January 29, 12pm 
Music Room (208), Levis Faculty Center

This talk works through the emerging methodology of the energy humanities in order to explore Herman Melville’s novel Moby-Dick and other nineteenth-century texts about energy, animals, and the ocean. Professor Jones theorizes Moby-Dick as a work of "peak whale oil" and suggests other points of continuity between whaling and petroleum culture.
