Apresentação

Now that the oxymoron (sustainable development) is decisively being let to blur into fuzziness (sustainability), anthropologists will have to pay attention, more than ever, to what has been elided (development). The economy that can continue forever is not developing in the same way or at the same rate or level as the economy that is asked to grow limitlessly; its nature has altered. Thinking anthropologically about human environmental relationships will thus remain incomplete, unless we provide an explanation of how people conceptualise nature and act in and in relation to it under current conditions of economic development and globalisation.  Issues of knowledge and reasoning, as well as moral commitment and decision-making have clearly emerged as unavoidable theoretical cornerstones for this work. It has also become clear that such an endeavour cannot be carried out from within the discipline of anthropology alone. With what other academic disciplines should anthropology carry out the project of documenting human environmental relationships from a nature, society, and development perspective? This question raises the issue of knowledge co-creation, familiar enough to those involved in ‘action research.’  What kinds of ethnographic collaboration will be recognised as ethically acceptable by those embarked on transition journeys towards ‘sustainability’? Although neither of these two questions are novel, they take on new meanings (and have different implications) now that the very purpose of research seems to have shifted quite significantly. Not only are we to examine commitments to values that are deeply implicated in our common future, but we are also expected to work collectively at bridging different values and interests as we seek workable solutions to intractable and complex problems, not least because our research must demonstrate its ‘impact.’

MÊS DO AMBIENTE

Convidamo-l@ a participar no MÊS DO AMBIENTE – eventos do DASE/CRIA em Fevereiro.

Interroga-se… Nunca se ouviu que Fevereiro fosse mês do ambiente…
Pois não. Mas este ano é… no CRIA!

Teremos 4 eventos, um por semana (propositadamente em dias diferentes da semana).
Com estes eventos pretende-se pensar antropologicamente as relações e os problemas ambientais na atualidade.

Teremos uma conferência inicial de uma reconhecida antropóloga, especialista nas relações entre natureza, sociedade e desenvolvimento; um seminário com um jovem investigador que nos permitirá discutir as relações entre humanos e não-humanos a partir da sua etnografia no contexto indiano; um evento de carácter prático (workshop) que conduzirá a aprendizagens sobre como planear a conservação de primatas tendo por base as populações humanas locais; e a projecção inédita de um filme (estreia em Portugal) sobre as efeitos das mudanças climáticas observados por uma antropóloga, seguida de debate.

Pode ver o programa geral em baixo e mais informação no site do CRIA.

Contamos com a sua participação e agradecemos a divulgação destes eventos nas suas redes de contactos.
