Oil shapes human life and impacts human values in profoundly connected ways across the planet. Yet rarely do we think of oil, like other forms of energy, beyond technology and policy. This symposium considers the relationship of oil with everyday life, human choices, politics, and art across Africa, Latin America, Russia, and East Asia.
