Elements of Border and Infrastructure: Earth I
October 20th, 2021 / 12:30 pm EST/ Link for Registration
The land question is an age old in the political history of the Middle East, but only more recently has scholarship on the politics of conservation and resource management brought such questions to bear on this topic. This panel invites its participants to discuss the impact of land management in the context of conservation and agricultural development since the late 20th century, and to ask how new conceptions of ecological morality, justice, and politics are shaping the regional response to both climate change and the legacies of imperialism, colonialism, and occupation. Further, we invite them to consider how the particular imbrication of climate and land politics should alter our understanding of future directions for climate justice on a global scale.
Please join the Hagop Kevorkian Center for our discussion on "Earth" in our 2021-2022 Elements of Borders and Infrastructure Series. This panel will feature presentations and discussion with Max Ajl (Wageningen University), Bridget Guarasci (Franklin and Marshall) and Caterina Scaramelli (Boston University).
