Synopsis

Contested Ecologies: Reimagining the Nature-Culture Divide in the Global South offers an intervention in the conversations on ecology and on coloniality, and on the ways in which modern thinking, with its bifurcation of nature and culture, constitutes ‘ecology’ within a very particular politics of the cosmos. The chapters in this collection contest the framework of knowledge that has deadlocked nature and culture, tradition and modernity, scientific and indigenous and in doing so makes a case for the value of rethinking knowledge beyond the nature-culture divide.
