Building on the twin premises: that (1) capital relies on the absolute jurisdictional authority of the state (and consequent suspension of Indigenous jurisdictional and territorial authorities) to ensure property and create a positive investment climate for extractive capital, and (2)accumulation strategies (and efforts/techniques developed to quicken and ensure the circulation of capital) are thus intimately linked to settler colonial rule, this session critically engages some of the ways in which settler colonial formations (e.g., settler accumulation, Indigenous dispossession, crown sovereignty) inflect contemporary political economies of resource extraction and governance. (Or put slightly differently how settler colonialism mediates and produces specific forms of economy and resource governance).
