Sandlos, John. “Episode 5: Ashlee Cunsolo and Sean Kheraj.” Crosscurrents: A Podcast of the Nexus Center, 16 January 2019, MP3, 54:05.

Over the next several episodes of Crosscurrents, we offer recordings of the key talks that were presented the Nexus Centre Workshop, the Environmental Humanities in the Public Realm. In this episode, we begin with Ashlee Cunsolo, Director of the Labrador Institute of Memorial University, who talks about the concept of ecological grief, or mourning, among Indigenous people in Labrador who are already experiencing some of the worst effects of Climate Change. In the second part of the episode, Sean Kheraj, an environmental historian from York University, speaks about research he completed for the City of Vancouver on the history of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Project, and his work on the history of oil and gas pipelines more generally.
