Jon Wlasiuk will discuss his book Refining Nature: Standard Oil and the Limits of Efficiency (Pittsburgh, 2017)
7:00 PM
The Standard Oil Company emerged out of obscurity in Cleveland in the 1860s to capture 90 percent of the petroleum refining industry in the United States during the Gilded Age. John D. Rockefeller, the company's founder, organized the company around an almost religious dedication to principles of efficiency. Economic success masked the dark side of efficiency as Standard Oil dumped oil waste into public waterways, filled the urban atmosphere with acrid smoke, and created a consumer safety crisis by selling kerosene below congressional standards.

Local governments, guided by a desire to favor the interests of business, deployed elaborate engineering solutions to tackle petroleum pollution at taxpayer expense rather than heed public calls to abate waste streams at their source. Only when refinery pollutants threatened the health of the Great Lakes in the twentieth century did the federal government respond to a nascent environmental movement. Organized around the four classical elements at the core of Standard Oil's success (earth, air, fire, and water), Refining Nature provides an ecological context for the rise of one of the most important corporations in American history.

Jon Wlasiuk is Assistant Professor of Practice at Michigan State University's Lyman Briggs College where he teaches environmental history.

Grounded
8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Dobama Theatre presents the Cleveland produced premiere of GROUNDED by George Brant, directed by Alice Reagan.

An ace fighter pilotís career in the sky is ended early due to an unexpected pregnancy. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns home to her family each night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away. GROUNDED is an epic poem that crafts an experience that is timely, human, and vital.
Winner of the Smith Prize for Political Theatre. GROUNDED features Anjanette Hall as the Pilot.

The show runs for 90 minutes with no intermission. Contains adult language and light effects.
