Environmental Transformations and Cultural Responses : Ontologies, Discourses, and Practices in Oceania
About this item
This book explores the various ways in which different communities and peoples in Oceania respond to and engage with recent environmental challenges and concurrent socio-political reconfigurations. Based on empirical research, this book discusses topics such as belonging, emotional attachment to land and new forms of environmental knowledge. The theoretical framework of this book is inspired by current debates among diverse conceptualisations of the environment and thus, of various ways of knowing, making sense of and interacting with worlds. With this focus in mind, the book provides new insights in recent socio-cultural and environmental dynamics in the Pacific.
