We are pleased to host a conversation with Kirstin Munro, author of the newly published book, The Production of Everyday Life in Eco-Conscious Households: Compromise, Conflict, Complicity (with Bristol University Press). This book offers an empirically-grounded theoretical approach to social reproduction and the production of everyday life in the context of heightened and seemingly ubiquitous environmental destruction. More concretely, through a Marxist-Feminist lens, Kirstin discusses the waged and unwaged work of production and consumption that eco-conscious households undertake as a way of navigating and resisting the competing demands of living in a neoliberal capitalist society. This event will explore questions related to social theory, political economy, and everyday life, as developed through Kirstin’s scholarly work.
Kirstin Munro is Assistant Professor of Political Science at The University of Texas whose research interests revolve around energy and environment, paid and unpaid labour, and economic growth and development. Kirstin also serves on the Editorial Board of The Review of Radical Political Economics.
