Political Economy of Bees | Shaping San Francisco | City History Lectures
The plight of pollinators – in particular the honey bee – under the combined stresses of capital and empire, is considered from an unusual perspective.
Jake Kosek, a farmer, radical geographer, and apiarist, discusses his researches into ‘political entomology,’ specifically the use of bees as material and metaphor by the US military (foraging for landmines, anti-terrorism weapons).
