Jeff Diamanti is Assistant Professor of Environmental Humanities (Cultural Analysis & Philosophy) at the University of Amsterdam. In 2016-17 he was the Media@McGill Postdoctoral Fellow in Media and the Environment where he co-convened the international colloquium on Climate Realism, the results of which appear in a book collection on Routledge and a double issue of Resilience. His first book, Climate and Capital in the Age of Petroleum: Locating Terminal Landscapes (Bloomsbury 2021) tracks the political and media ecology of fossil fuels across the extractive and logistical spaces that connect remote territories like Greenland to the economies of North America and Western Europe. His new research, Bloom Ecologies details the return to natural philosophy in the marine and atmospheric sciences studying the interactive dynamics of the cryosphere and hydrosphere in the North Atlantic and Arctic Ocean.
His work has appeared in the journals e-flux, Radical Philosophy, Stasis, New Formations, Postmodern Culture, Mediations, Western American Literature, Krisis, and Reviews in Cultural Theory, as well a number of books including After Ice (University of British Columbia Press), Fueling Culture (Fordham UP) and A Companion to Critical and Cultural Studies (Wiley-Blackwell). Diamanti has edited a number of book and journal collections including Contemporary Marxist Theory (Bloomsbury 2014); Materialism and the Critique of Energy (MCM’ Press 2018); Energy Culture (West Virginia University Press 2019); Bloomsbury Companion to Marx (2018); and a special issue of Reviews in Cultural Theory on “Energy Humanities.” Forthcoming editorial work includes the Elemental Solarities book collection (Punctum Press) with Cymene Howe and Amelia Moore, and a special issue of Postmodern Culture on “Field Theory.” He co-directs the ASCA Political Ecologies Seminar with Joost de Bloois, and with Amanda Boetzkes, he co-organizes “At the Moraine,” an ongoing research project on the political ecology of glacial retreat in the Arctic. With Fred Carter, he co-directs the FieldARTS residency in Amsterdam, NL.
