Professor Timothy Mitchell is a renowned scholar on political economy. He will be at the University of Victoria to present "Carbon Democracy": Energy and Democratic Politics in the Bob Wright Centre room B150.

His work has examined the creation of economic knowledge and the making of �the economy� and �the market� as objects of twentieth-century politics; the problems with explaining contemporary politics in terms of globalization or the development of capitalism.

Dr. Mitchell, Professor of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies at Columbia University, recently published Carbon Democracy: Political Power in the Age of Oil. Prof. Mitchell�s presentation will address the principal themes of Carbon Democracy.

His visit is jointly sponsored with the Victoria Colloquium in Political, Social and Legal Theory.

The CCCBE Distinguished Speaker Series is free & open to the public with support from Central 1 Credit Union, Co-operators Group, Federated Co-operatives Ltd & Gustavson School of Business.
