An Academic Theory of Rewilding (?)

By • Sep 13th, 2017 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

In my final paper, I attempt to construct an academic theory of rewilding. Rewilding in the academy exists almost exclusively as scientific ponderings on ecosystem health, and almost never as a humanity – which is how it nearly exclusively exists outside of the academy. While it would be typical academic fashion to claim only to…

Eco-anarchism and climate change

By • Sep 13th, 2017 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

The perception of eco-anarchism in mainstream environmental circles is essentially as a group of people with different calculus or a different timeline; eco-anarchists are simply the more forceful branch of the Sierra Club. This perception is fundamentally untrue. Anarchism is not a program; it is an ethic. Earth First! and other eco-anarchist groups operate off…

Decolonization and the Wild

By • Jun 11th, 2017 • Category: Honors Thesis, nature, Research

The Academy only goes so far left (and only in certain domains). The majority of radical ecological writers are seemingly unpublished (unless you count the Anarchist Library as a publisher). And in trying to push the envelope, occasionally, necessarily, one breaks out. “Research” takes on a different tone. I’d already discarded the idea of anything…

Abstract: Hegemonic Whiteness, Left Impotence

By • May 3rd, 2017 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Kyriarchy, i.e. a social system which relies on hierarchical relationships of domination, oppression, and submission, and which denotes the assemblage resulting from patriarchy, capitalism, white supremacy, anthropocentrism, cisheternormativity, and colonialism, relies on its hegemony in social relations. Linguistic, cultural, and social capital are constructed in ways that reflect perpetual conflict between dominant and oppressed classes. While…

Blog post #3 – Final thoughts, Final product

By • Aug 17th, 2015 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Since blog post #2, I have (you may notice a trend) read numerous more articles and several books that were recommended to me by a professor of archaeology at UVA. At this point, I restricted my articles to filling in gaps in my knowledge and making the project more specific to the present. I researched […]



Blog post #2 – Erasure, Law, Resistance

By • Aug 11th, 2015 • Category: anthropology, archaeology, Honors Thesis, Marxism, Research

#2 This will be a common burial-place where all shall meet on terms of common fellowship and brotherhood. Every dear relation in life, severed by death, shall be found restored again in these grounds— husband and wife, parent and child, brother and sister, shall be reunited here. Friend shall meet friend here; and enemies, too, […]



Ideology of the Cemetery, Ideology of Archaeology, Ideology of Resistance

By • Aug 6th, 2015 • Category: anthropology, Honors Thesis, Research

It is presumably time that I make my first blog post. Here, I hope to detail three things: My renewed understanding of struggles for liberation and sovereignty thanks to the educational work of Sierra’s SPROG Notices through preliminary research of the history of disrupted human remains for marginalized communities Randall H. McGuire’s “Ideology of the […]



Oil, Blood, and Spirits: Pipelines and the Disruption of Sacred Grounds – abstract

By • Mar 19th, 2015 • Category: history, Honors Thesis, Research

Our 8th grade history textbooks preach of the glorious reach of a nation “from sea to shining sea”. A manifest destiny for the United States, somehow ignoring the accompanying genocide of American Indians and the underlying purpose of expansion: slavery.  The pattern continues. American Indian and slave burial grounds have been disrupted by our nation’s […]
