Abstract

Abstract:

How might we understand the intense and widespread environmental activism emanating from communities that staunchly supported Trump? I begin grappling with this question by putting Wendy Brown's Undoing the Demos and In the Ruins of Neoliberalism into dialogue with the already voluminous literature on Trumpism. Turning to environmental political theory, I then make the case that whereas neoliberalism functions through the depoliticization and economization of social life, the undoing of the oikos—the socioecological place that we call home—is politicizing subjects in the most unlikely of places, and creating resistance in the process.
