Forests, Famines and livlihoods: towards an environmental history of Eastern India
This seminar will discuss the impact of globalisation on the forested landscapes and indigenous or adivasi cultures of India will focus on the environmental and mining history of Eastern India and will add greatly both to debates on the history of globalisation and the environment, and to knowledge of India’s natural heritage and its adivasi communities. This has relevance for global debates on sustainability, equity and well being.
