Teaching Energy Geography? It's Complicated
Huber, Matt
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v40 n1 p77-83 2016
The premise of this essay is that energy geographies are complicated, and this in itself presents some pedagogical difficulties. As someone who wants students to critically examine and confront the complexity of energy systems, it can be frustrating when students react to demonstrate frustration, apathy, or even confusion. In what follows, I will lay out three complications of teaching energy geography: (1) empirical complexity, (2) confronting fossil fuel "embeddedness," (3) the energy culture fallacy.
