Max Liboiron is Associate Professor of Geography at Memorial University.
"There are exceedingly few texts like this that ask from an
Indigenous perspective: how might we consider relations between
science and land and water and still practice 'good' science?
Pollution Is Colonialism is at the leading edge of a
significant turn in science and technology studies toward thinking
with settler colonialism as a structure and terrain, and by
bringing Indigenous studies into conversations with pollution,
plastics, and lab sciences, this book makes a major contribution."
-- Candis Callison, author of * How Climate Change Comes to Matter:
The Communal Life of Facts *
"One of the most original and compelling books I've read in a long time, Pollution Is Colonialism is a truly exciting intellectual achievement. It argues for, and most importantly models, a decolonial scientific practice. A must-read book for anyone concerned about land relations." -- Joseph Masco, author of * The Future of Fallout, and Other Episodes in Radioactive World-Making *
"This important book challenges the very sense of what pollution is, demonstrating its deep entanglements with settler colonialism, and then generously offers us anticolonial feminist methods that might better take up pollution's colonial form. This book is a model of what engaged feminist anticolonial STS research looks like." -- Michelle Murphy, author of * The Economization of Life *
"To read Liboiron is to constantly be surprised, reeducated, alarmed, and moved to practice anticolonial methodologies and interrogate everything we know. For someone who considered themselves to be a 'poor writer' because of dyslexia, Liboiron has written a text for the ages." -- Kerri Arsenault * Orion *
