Abstract:
Saskatchewan's recent oil boom is reshaping rural lives and landscapes. In this presentation, Emily Eaton will provide an analysis of how the boom is reshaping gendered roles and work in oil producing areas of the province. The research is based on field work conducted over the summer of 2015 and includes interviews with oil workers and social service providers as well as ethnographic data collected while staying in campgrounds.
