Rereading Russian Energy Chains Under the Thunder of War
12:30 pm
Margarita Balmaceda
Sponsored by:
Center for Russian East European and Eurasian Studies and European Studies Center

This keynote event is part of the European and Eurasian Undergraduate Research Symposium 2022.
In this presentation Professor Balmaceda will revisit the burning question of how global, more specifically Europe's dependency on Russian fossil fuel chains has affected international responses to Ukraine's security. Her latest book, Russian Energy Chains: The Remaking of Technopolitics from Siberia to Ukraine to the European Union, sheds light on how Russia's fossil fuel exports have created what now seems like more of a threat than an opportunity for all parties involved. In her book, Professor Balmaceda follows the geopolitical journey of three fossil fuel molecules from production in Siberia to processing and transit in Ukraine, to final use in Germany, while giving us invaluable insight into the moving forces behind the politics and economics surrounding fossil fuels.
