Performative Environmentalism

(p.157) 7 Performative Environmentalism
Fracking the Neighborhood

Jessica Smartt Gullion

The MIT Press

This chapter explains the ways in which environmental activists use performance to express their pain of living in a polluted region. In many environmental controversies, there is a clash between the emotional toll that living with pollution takes on residents, and debates over objective, quantitative indicators of harm. Ultimately, regulatory officials try to seize control of performance and limit affective displays.

Keywords:   Performance, Performative environmentalism, Performativity, Pain
