For The History of Anthro Thought after reading about Global Apartheid we tackle the section “On Environment” with four readings:

  • Paige West, “Translation, Value, and Space: Theorizing an Ethnographic and Engaged Environmental Anthropology” (2005)
  • Zöe Todd, “Indigenizing the Anthropocene” (2015)
  • Arturo Escobar, Excerpt from Designs for a Pluriverse: Radical Interdependence, Autonomy and the Making of Worlds (2018)
  • Alaka Wali, “Complicity and Resistance in the Indigenous Amazon: Economía Indígena Under Siege” (2020)

Next: 21. State Power

Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together. This blog is a personal project of Jason Antrosio, author of Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.
