  3. 3. The Specter of Scarcity : Experiencing and Coping with Metal Shortages, 1870-2015

    Författare :Hanna Vikström; Per Högselius; Dag Avango; Fjaestad Maja; Ingulstad Mats; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; scarcity; critical metals; Sweden; small countries; strategic metals; metal shortages; history of technology; experiences of scarcity; coping with shortages; technological trends; World War I; resource crisis; construction of resources.; History of Science; Technology and Environment; Historiska studier av teknik; vetenskap och miljö;

    Sammanfattning : In spite of an ever-growing supply of metals, actors have long feared metal shortages. This thesis – departing from an understanding that metals scarcity is not an objective geological fact, but an experience, a fear of a shortage – explores why business and state actors have experienced metals as scarce and how they coped with scarcity from 1870 to 2015.

  4. 4. Breathtaking Greenhouse Parastructures : a supplement to the Arcades Project from a Caribbean Perspective [and a call for a careful practice of epistemológica]

    Sammanfattning : Breathtaking Greenhouse Parastructures is a doctoral work that supplements the unfinished modern opus The Arcades Project [in German Das Passagen-Werk (Mit Bindestrich und Werk mit Capital W) ]. The supplement takes the form of a sculptural, historical, and technological deposition of ‘greenhouse’ that presently oscillates between a past-background and future-foreground to Walter Benjamin's ‘theatrical’ handling of the Parisian arcades.

    Sammanfattning : The Arctic—warming at twice the rate of the rest of the planet—is a source of striking imagery of amplified environmental change in our time, and has come to serve as a spatial setting for climate crisis discourse. The recent alterations in the Arctic environment have also been perceived by some observers as an opportunity to expand economic exploitation. LÄS MER
