Mining the Heartland

Nature, Place, and Populism on the Iron Range

«In this engaging and grounded book, Kojola vividly portrays how conflicts around extractivism represent complex intersections between race and racism, settler colonialism, histories of place, and systems of inequality. Kojola's ethnographic account takes on deep social fissures that transcend this case, contributing to vital conversations on equity and justice.»

«Erik Kojola offers a deeply engaging, multi-methodological study that reveals the complex relationships among place, emotion, and collective memory in the formation of rural, white cultural identity and how they influence political decisions around environmentally risky development. Mining the Heartland skillfully explores how environmental, cultural, and class politics can be understood more fully if we pay attention to how nonhuman elements and species are mobilized through efforts to promote change and defend collective identity formation. This book speaks directly to the heart of what is driving political polarization in the U.S. today.»

David N. Pellow, author of What is Critical Environmental Justice?

«Kojola tells a fascinating story in a geography that is often ignored by the rest of the country. In doing so, he reveals the fundamental importance of culture and white identity for conflicts that appear to be all about policy or economics. An impressive analysis.»

Justin Farrell, author of Billionaire Wilderness: The Ultra-Wealthy and the Remaking of the American

«Emphasizing community dynamics and the political-economic, cultural, and symbolic power of mining as an extractive economy, Kojola offers skillful analysis of complex conflicts over land use, rights, and access related to emergent copper-nickel mining in northeast Minnesota’s Iron Range. Revealing the voices of stakeholders and tensions linked to emotions, class, race, gender, masculinity and femininity, the narrative offers nuance and insight into a community divided. Kojola’s work provides expert sociological insight into ways of understanding, experiences of nature, identity, and sense of place in a space uniquely rich with collective history with a complicated past and an uncertain future.»

Tamara L. Mix, author of Meet the Food Radicals
