Join the Extinction, Extraction, Emergence lecture by Dr. Sophie Chao

5 April 2023

Extinction, Extraction, Emergence: Plantation Necrobiopolitics on the West Papuan Oil Palm Frontier | By Dr. Sophie Chao

Are you fascinated by the intersection of indigenous communities, plantation regimes, and the impacts on the environment? If so, don't miss Dr. Chao's upcoming lecture. Drawing on extensive fieldwork in West Papua, Dr. Chao will take us on a journey through Indigenous Marind communities as they experience, theorise, and critique the impacts of plantation regimes on their intimate and ancestral relations to the living environment.

The lecture will delve into the philosophy of more-than-human extinction, extraction, and emergence, demonstrating how it constitutes a form of epistemic resistance against the hierarchizing and disciplining logic of plantation regimes.
