“What Comes After Oil?” was a piece of a larger four-day event, the After Oil School.

The After Oil School gathered experts in energy humanities from the University of Alberta and around the world to explore, critically and creatively, the social, cultural and political changes necessary to facilitate a full-scale transition from fossil fuels to new forms of energy. In addition to scholars and graduate students from the U of A, the AOS was attended by experts from Duke U, Durham U (UK), Emily Carr, McGill U, OCAD, Rice U, U of Calgary, U of Iowa, U of Oregon, Warwick U (UK), among other institutions.
