Author Biography

Isabel Lockhart, Princeton University

Isabel (or Izzy) Lockhart is a PhD Candidate in the English Department at Princeton University, working on twentieth century and contemporary literature across the fields of the environmental humanities, the energy humanities, and Indigenous studies. Izzy’s dissertation, Settler Colonialism and the Subsurface: Indigenous Resistance to Extraction in the Great Acceleration, studies the way that contemporary Indigenous literatures reckon with resource extraction during a period of enormous economic growth and high energy consumption, from 1990 to the present. Their second project, Critical Care Infrastructure: Adaptive Family and Environmental Crisis, looks at expansive networks of care as a queer genre of climate adaptation and energy transition.
