Environment-Society Interface in Africa
The way we discuss the relationship between the environment and society is not a transparent window because it reflects the culture in which we live and its priorities and values. The aim of this workgroup is to trace the interaction between humans and the natural environment in different social, geographical, economic and political conditions in order to enlarge the discourse about sustainability and the environmental conservation.
A question that can be discussed in the workgroup: how local groups coping abilities with environmental issues are shaken by the relationship of society and nature.
The Environment-Society relationship can be also related to the context of development discourses, practices and politics in Africa.
All members of the workgroup will take turn to present their works, such as the dissertation progress and the conference papers, and get feedback from other group members. The theoretical texts regardless of disciplines can also be discussed on request.
Our meeting will be held once a month as well as on request.
We welcome all Junior Fellows working on the environment-related topics to join us. If you are interested, please contact one of the group members.
