Conferences Address Oil Sands and Other Topics

By July 28, 2012

Follow me on:

Petrocultures is an academic research group formed in May 2011 and based at the University of Alberta. It was founded "to support, produce, and distribute research related to the social and cultural implications of oil and energy on individuals, communities, and societies around the world today."

The group includes scholars, academicians, writers, artists and filmmakers who watch, explore and analyze a wide range of socio-cultural issues in communities to which the oil and energy industry has been attracted by resources. The group's base is situated in an area near many communities impacted by the development of oil sands east and north of Edmonton.

The group will host its first Petrocultures conference at the University of Alberta's Campus Saint-Jean in Edmonton on Sept. 6-9, 2012.
