Dr. Daggett is making final revisions to her book manuscript, Energy at Work: Fossil Ethics in the Anthropocene, which is under contract with Duke University Press. The book traces the entangled industrial politics of work and energy following the ‘discovery’ of energy in the 19th century. Through the science of energy, work could be conceved as a site of energy conversion that was in need of new tactics of imperial governance. The conclusion argues that, without challenging dominant practices of work and leisure, it will remain difficult to dislodge fossil fuel cultures.
Dr. Daggett is also beginning research on her next project, which interrogates the relationship between fossil fuels and fascism. Fossil fascism draws connections between the mounting, existential insecurities of the Anthropocene, and especially to fossil-fueled lifestyles and capitalism, and proto-fascist desires and movements within Western, liberal democracies.
