About the Political ecologies seminar series
The « Political ecologies (in the plural) seminar series » invites inquiries that are multiple, overlapping, converging, and contradictory, drawing upon approaches and practices ranging from multi-species to historical, anthropological, and ecological to agricultural. This seminar series sits in this generative space between and across fields - and asks what political ecology is and can be (as a community of practice) of people using political ecology approaches. Each semester, the seminar series invites scholars, practitioners, and activists from many traditions to share their research - in theory and practice.

2022-2023 : « Thinking with Plants and Animals »
Spices, cattle, trees, parrots, and tigers… what does it mean for Political ecology and related fields to think with plants and animals? The speakers in this series speak to a variety of themes that place more-than-human actors at the center of their inquiries of conservation, supply chains, food, and medicine. Join us for presentations and discussion with scholars from a range of approaches as we continue to explore the many stakes and priorities of Political ecologies.
