Michael Ekers
Associate Professor
Human Geography

My research mobilizes social and political theory and political economic approaches to understand the making of different environmental landscapes including forestscapes and alternative agrarian spaces.  I focus on what brings different people to labour on particular environmental spaces and the social positioning and identities of the workers that make nature.  Finally, I examine the political possibilities and constraints at play within varied attempts to make environmental spaces. Current research interests and ongoing projects include: "The Ecological Fix"; "The Antinomies of Unpaid Labour in the Alternative Food Movement"; "Producing he British Columbia Forestscape"; "Gramsci, Geograph and Environmental Hegemony".
