Extractivism Annual International Conference 2022
The collaborative research project Extractivism.de organizes its first International Annual Conference from the 12th to the 14th of October, 2022, in Kassel, Germany. The conference’s theme is
“Raw Materials, the Global South and Development in the 21st Century: mobilizing rents, grasping extractivist societies.”
This year’s conference aims to reconceptualize the theoretical relationship between extractivism and rents, stimulating deeper analyses concerning the particular and nuanced types of rent-led development trajectories. We want to explore how and in what ways societies specializing in extracting and exporting raw materials reproduce themselves primarily through the revenues obtained by selling them to the global market. We also seek to bring together ideas from different disciplinary fields in which rents and extractivism have major relevance, broadening the space for dialogue between Political Economy, Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology, International Relations, and Cultural Studies.

The conference will be held in a hybrid format, and the meetings will occur at Golden Tulip Kassel.
