Field Research in the Permian Basin

During a three-day excursion, students explored the land and histories of the Permian Basin while listening to the diverse perspectives of people who live there. The experiences included watching a wind turbine churn, hearing an argument for fracking from an oilfield operations manager, and holding a student-led dialogue within the ruins of an oil ghost town. The learning from this trip will inform the student reflections which will be shared with the public in our upcoming exhibition and newsprint publication.
