Indigenous and More-than-human Ecological Justice Workshop 15-19 Sept 2022

On 15-19 September, RCSD co-organized the “Indigenous and More-Than-Human Ecological Justice: Environmental Humanities Research in the Global South” workshop with the American Association for Asian Studies (AAS), AMOR MUNDI Multispecies Ecological Worldmaking Lab and the Integrative Center for Humanities Innovation (ICHI) of Chiang Mai University; and supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).

The workshop aimed to bridge humanities and social sciences to tackle environmental issues while co-learning with the people’s ways of lives in Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son. This workshop was a space for young scholars of the global south and those who work with young scholars to collaborate and learn about multispecies studies and more-than-human ecological justice. Over 25 participants and mentors from Thailand, Laos, India, Hong Kong, Myanmar, Germany, USA, England and Scotland were part of this co-creating process. Representatives from the workshop will present their learnings and findings at the AAS-in-Asia symposium this December 2022 at Chiang Mai.
