Event Description
Ordering the Anthropocene: Law and the Environment in the Indian Ocean
Prompted by the contemporary relevance of climate change and disaster relief in the Indian Ocean world, this workshop showcases new scholarship that explores the intersections of climate, landscape transformation, and legal ordering in oceanic and littoral zones. The papers explore a range of issues: from how states sought to bind, improve, and mitigate the power of environmental phenomena; how natural landscapes facilitated border surveillance, boundary-creation as well as the expansion of imperial models of governing nature to the postcolonial world?
