From Timber Rush to Environmental Crisis: The Political Forests of Romania, 1990-2020

Donnerstag, 05.11.2020, 18:15 Uhr | The talk explores transformations of human-animal-forest relations over the last thirty years. It shows how unruly coalitions and politics shaped forest and animal histories in the Romanian Carpathian Mountains. In brief, the argument is that a timber boom triggered an environmental crisis narrative, and further cascaded into changes in forestry and mountain dwellers' livelihoods, reshaping forests from wood reservoirs into national treasures and homes for bears and precious reintroduced bison. The talk anchors the arguments in ethnographic research and uses insights from environmental history and political ecology.

Development on Ice: The Political Geography and Geology of a Melting Arctic

With climate change melting away the Arctic ice cap, multinational corporations, national governments, and indigenous corporations all see opportunities for development. More than geophysical factors, however, are motivating the drive to develop resources and infrastructure in the region. In this talk, Mia Bennett will explain how​ from Siberia to northern Canada, despite the importance of environmental factors, development remains politically and economically conditioned, locally negotiated, and cyclical rather than linear.

«Wir wollen leben!» Umwelt und Gesellschaft in der späten Sowjetunion

Die Katastrophe von Tschernobyl (1986) forcierte einen grundlegenden Wandel in der Wahrnehmung des Wechselverhältnisses zwischen Mensch und Natur in der sowjetischen Gesellschaft. Ende der 1980er entstand eine breite Umweltbewegung, die den Zusammenbruch der Sowjetunion allerdings nur kurz überdauerte. Der Vortrag analysiert die Ursachen, Formen und Reichweiten dieses spätsowjetischen Umweltbooms. | Universität Bern, GIUB, 24.09.2020, 18.15 Uhr
