Vortragende Person/Vortragende Personen:

Political ecology is, according to Robbins, a field that critically interrogates the nature–society relations, particularly looking at the power relations that intersect and affect the access to natural resources, in order to reveal disparities and injustices in the distribution of costs and benefits.

Against this background, we want to explore the mutual relationships among political, economic and social acting; discourses and imaginaries of the natural environment; and environmental transformations in the 19th and 20th century. By addressing diverse relations that shaped the biophysical environment and ecosystems on a global scale, we intend to connect research projects that address environmental knowledge as a politically contested field in global, imperial and (post) colonial studies.
