Not Participation: The Rise of the Eco-Precariat in the Green Economy.

Antipode 2020 Mar 24;52(2):496-521. Epub 2020 Jan 24.

Lancaster Environment Centre Lancaster University Lancaster UK.

Despite recent attention to "frontier" green economies and the governance of emerging ecosystem services, the specific division of labour in these economies has been little studied. As many such initiatives are in the global South, labour's marginality potentially contributes to the existing precariousness of those who are more often identified as "participants". This article examines the roles and vulnerabilities of these actors: the carbon counters, species identifiers, GIS mappers, tree planters and others operating in the shadows. Read More

A Crisis of Opportunity: Market-Making, Big Data, and the Consolidation of Migration as Risk.

Antipode 2020 Jan 22;52(1):270-290. Epub 2019 Oct 22.

Institute of History, University of Leiden Leiden The Netherlands.

Crisis narratives surrounding Europe's 2015 migration influx fuelled demands for new ways of tracking, mapping and predicting human mobility. We explore how market opportunities for technology firms and data analytics start-ups created by the EU's Global Approach to Migration led to solutionistic approaches to compiling and analysing migration statistics. We show that initiatives such as the rebranding of existing platforms and services as migration prediction systems are consolidating policy conceptualisations of migration as risk. Read More

Political Ecologies of Global Health: Pesticide Exposure in Southwestern Ecuador's Banana Industry.

Antipode 2018 Jan 13;50(1):61-81. Epub 2017 Jun 13.

School of Population and Public HealthUniversity of British ColumbiaVancouverBCCanada.

Pesticide exposure in Ecuador's banana industry reflects political economic and ecological processes that interact across scales to affect human health. We use this case study to illustrate opportunities for applying political ecology of health scholarship in the burgeoning field of global health. Drawing on an historical literature review and ethnographic data collected in Ecuador's El Oro province, we present three main areas where a political ecological approach can enrich global health scholarship: perceptive characterization of multi-scalar and ecologically entangled pathways to health outcomes; critical analysis of discursive dynamics such as competing scalar narratives; and appreciation of the environment-linked subjectivities and emotions of people experiencing globalized health impacts.

Announcing Swine Flu and the Interpretation of Pandemic Anxiety.

Authors:
Jonathan Everts

Antipode 2013 Sep 19;45(4):809-825. Epub 2012 Jul 19.

Department of Geography, University of Bayreuth, Germany;

This paper discusses the ways in which 2009 novel swine-origin influenza A (H1N1) was announced and resonated with current pandemic anxieties. In particular, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are used as a lens through which recent pandemic anxieties can be analysed and understood. This entails a closer look at the securitisation of public health and the challenges and struggles this may have caused within public health agencies. Read More

Breeding Influenza: The Political Virology of Offshore Farming.

Authors:
Robert G Wallace

Antipode 2009 Nov 23;41(5):916-951. Epub 2009 Oct 23.

Department of Geography, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA;

The geographic extent, xenospecificity, and clinical course of influenza A (H5N1), the bird flu strain, suggest the virus is an excellent candidate for a pandemic infection. Much attention has been paid to the virus's virology, pathogenesis and spread. In contrast, little effort has been aimed at identifying influenza's social origins. Read More

Governing the Sick City: Urban Governance in the Age of Emerging Infectious Disease.

Antipode 2007 Nov 7;39(5):846-873. Epub 2007 Dec 7.

York University, Toronto, Canada; and

Based on a case study of the 2003 severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak in Toronto, Canada, this article suggests that we may have to rethink our common perception of what urban governance entails. Rather than operating solely in the conceptual proximity of social cohesion and economic competitiveness, urban governance may soon prove to be more centrally concerned with questions of widespread disease, life and death and the construction of new internal boundaries and regulations just at the time that globalization seems to suggest the breakdown of some traditional scalar incisions such as national boundaries in a post-Westphalian environment. We argue that urban governance must face the new (or reemerging) challenge of dealing with infectious disease in the context of the "new normal" and that global health governance may be better off by taking the possibilities that rest in metropolitan governance more seriously.

The production of diaspora: Algerian emigration from colonialism to neo-colonialism (1840-1970).

Authors:

Antipode 1997 Jan;29(1):32-64

"This paper is part of a larger project investigating the production and regulation of North African immigrants in the greater Paris automobile industry. Its aims are twofold. First, to reverse the emphasis placed on immigrants in the receiving countries and to (re-)explore the historical production of Algerian emigration into metropolitan industry, more specifically within the automobile industry.

Population and poverty in dependent states: Latin America considered.

Antipode 1990 Aug;22(2):121-55

"Malthusians maintain that rapid population growth aggravates poverty, while Marxists contend that social formations determine its nature and extent. Each perspective is incomplete, however, since it ignores the insights of the other. Latin American states, characterized by dependent capitalism formations and dominated by ruling elites, are generally incapable of solving the problems of population and poverty. Read More
