Event description
Researchers behind Submerged Heritage present their project. With a contribution by Mimi Sheller.

About this event

The research project Submerged Heritage pivots around the Brokopondo water reservoir in Suriname, which was created to power the modern hunger for aluminium. Researchers Daphne Bakker, Miguel Peres dos Santos and Vincent van Velsen talk about the project. Mimi Sheller delivers a lecture on her book Aluminum Dreams: The Making of Light Modernity.

Using a single material as an entry point to understanding a global history of modernisation and its implications for the future, the event Aluminium Dreams forces us to ask: How do we assemble the material culture of modernity, and what are its environmental consequences?
