Conflict, Migration, and Return: Negotiating Registration and Displacement in Ukraine, 2014-present

Center for Global Studies Global Migrations Series

Since 2014, the on-going war in eastern Ukraine has claimed more than 14,000 casualties and displaced nearly 2 million individuals, primarily from the former oblasts of Luhansk and Donetsk (the Donbas). What can this large scale population movement add to our understanding of displacement and conflict? How can the experiences of IDPs in Ukraine inform the meaning and measurement of the strains displacements places upon the State?

Oceans of Oil: Moby-Dick, Energy, and the Environmental Humanities

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. Ultimately, Herman Melville and other observers writing from the beginning of massive fossil fuel consumption in the nineteenth century help us understand how the energy transition of the nineteenth century might speak to the energy and climate crises of the twenty-first century.

Refugee Passage: The Spectacle of Magnanimity and the Politics of Nepali-Bhutanese Arrival in the United States

In late 2015, the US Embassy in Nepal circulated a press release titled “United States Resettles 100,000th Bhutanese Refugee from Nepal,” celebrating the occasion in a ceremony attended by representatives of the UNHCR, IOM, and the US Ambassador to Nepal. Touting the Nepali-Bhutanese example as “the most successful program of its kind,” festive events like this struck a self-congratulatory tone that emphasized how increasing resettlement numbers of Nepali-Bhutanese refugees had become routine towards the tail end of the resettlement process that began in 2007...
