Welcome to the Emotional Political Ecology Symposium!
Convened by Alice Beban (Massey University), Sango Mahanty (The Australian National University) and Sopheak Chann (Royal University of Phnom Penh) as part of the POLLEN 2022 virtual conference series.
The Emotional Political Ecology symposium aims to explore the possibilities that working with emotions offers for advancing the broader field of political ecology. Working with emotion opens possibilities for imagining new kinds of human-non-human relations, more deeply theorising power and resistance, and centering lived experience and relational subjectivities to go beyond binary ways of thinking about development and nature.
Participants in the Emotional Political Ecology symposium have prepared presentations as part of panels which can be viewed using the links below. Each panel has one live event between 5 - 9th September.
The event opened with an opening keynote panel featuring Professor Andrea Nightingale (University of Oslo), Dr. April Bennett (Massey University) and Dr. Sochanny Hak (Analyzing Development Issues Centre, Cambodia). Make sure to watch the recording above!
