Refracted Economies: Diamond Mining and Social Reproduction in the North
The Global Labour Research Centre at York University presents a book talk of Rebecca Jane Hall’s “Refracted Economies: Diamond Mining and Social Reproduction in the North.”
Adopting a decolonizing and feminist approach to political economy, “Refracted Economies” analyses the impact of diamond mining in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The book centres on Indigenous women’s social reproduction as a means of understanding the diffuse impacts of the diamond mines.
Rebecca Jane Hall is a settler of Irish and British descent and Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Development Studies at Queen’s University.Log in
