Cara Daggett

Cara Daggett teaches several classes on global security and politics at Virginia Tech University. Her recent writings in response to the 2016 election describe what seems to her as a convergence of “climate change, a threatened fossil fuel system, and an increasingly fragile Western hypermasculinity.” Daggett warns that fossil fuels are contributing to a warped sense of “authoritarianism” and “masculine identity” among men. The feminist professor argues, “Burning fossil fuels can come to function as a knowingly violent experience, a reassertion of white masculine power on an unruly planet that is perceived to be increasingly in need of violent, authoritarian order.”
