World-Ecology and the Capitalocene w/ Jason Moore on Guerrilla History

By Guerrilla History

Anthropocene or Capitalocene? Nature, History, and the Crisis of Capitalism

In this episode of Guerrilla History, we bring on a good friend and comrade of ours, Professor Jason W. Moore!  In this fabulous conversation, we discuss world-ecology, the capitalocene, and how to view/analyze history through these lenses.  We intend on getting into much further discussion with Jason in a couple of upcoming episodes that we already have planned, so be sure to check this one out to prepare yourself for those!

Jason W. Moore is an environmental historian and historical geographer at Binghamton University, and has authored multiple outstanding books that you should check out. Among these are Anthropocene or Capitalocene? Nature, History, and the Crisis of Capitalism, Capitalism in the Web of Life: Ecology and the Accumulation of Capital, and (with Raj Patel) A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things: A Guide to Capitalism, Nature, and the Future of the Planet, the last of which we already have an upcoming episode planned for.  You can follow Jason on twitter @oikeios
