The Anthropocene, Indigeneity and the Planetary Imagination
Why should scholars engage with the anthropocene? Is the anthropocene an invitation to think and act more globally and collaboratively? Or is it license to accelerate the hyper-modern projects that already threaten to suffocate and unhome indigenous communities? Reflecting on the on-going 'The Skin of Chitwan' exhibition and their own research, Nepal scholars Pasang Yanjee Sherpa, Austin Lord and Alston D’Silva discuss how the category of indigeneity as an increasingly vital line of analysis of planetary crises complicates and informs questions of agency, climate change, and political imagination.
