James Rhatigan

I am a PhD student with the Geography Department at UBC. My doctoral research focuses on the environmental history of the Canadian nuclear industry. My research examines the political economic and geographic processes that shaped, and were in turn shaped by, the extraction, processing, and export of uranium and the production of nuclear power in Canada during the Cold War. Through this research, I hope to contribute an historical perspective to ongoing discussions about the nature and politics of extraction and energy production in Canada and the formation of international resource economies.
