Kai Bosworth is a PhD candidate in the department of Geography, Society and Environment at the University of Minnesota, where he researches how public controversy around resource extraction and transportation is changing political conceptions of land, property, and the underground. Through an examination of oil pipeline infrastructure in North America, Kai’s dissertation examines the ways in which mainstream environmentalist responses to pipeline infrastructure reinforce a liberal and populist conception of agrarian democracy. This research forms part of a broader investigation into feminist and Marxist spatial and environmental theory in the Anthropocene. Kai holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Macalester College and an M.A. in Geography from the University of Minnesota. His works have appeared in Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, The Extractive Industries and Society, and Capitalism and the Earth (forthcoming from Punctum books).
