Eliot Storer on Geoengineering and Biopolitics

CENHS predoctoral fellow Eliot Storer is working on geoengineering. His post at the Committee on Anthropology of Science, Technology, and Computing (CASTAC) blog investigates the biopolitical stakes of proposed environmental technologies and interventions.

Eliot Storer is a PhD student in the Department of Anthropology at Rice University. His research engages environmental management, planetary thinking, and energy systems. His dissertation research is a comparative study of emerging environmental interventions and technologies that attempt to solve global climate challenges, and that quintessentially do not fit easily in established domains of climate change mitigation or adaptation. Storer also co-facilitates the Ethnography Studio, an experimental, interdisciplinary center for ethnographic research on Rice’s campus.
