Indigenous and non-western understandings of climate change: 
Latin American challenges to colonial and extractivist discourses 

2 February, Tuesday, 6 pm IST 

By Rosalyn Bold, Department of Social Anthropology, University College, London 

Use the following Zoom link to join. All are welcome. 


Dr Rosalyn Bold is a social anthropologist whose work focuses on creating a cosmopolitics of climate change. She undertook her PhD fieldwork in Highland Bolivia, and wrote Indigenous Perceptions of the End of the World: Creating a Cosmopolitics of Change (2019) and articles on pro-indigenous environmental law in Bolivia, as well as on the 'cosmoscape', considering how contrasting worlding practices contest and converse with one another in contemporary indigenous responses to extractivism. 

About the talk : What relevance can indigenous and other non-western environmental understandings have in creating climate change strategies? Rosalyn Bold will outline the recent turn to cosmopolitics and political ontology in the social sciences, which have allowed us to take seriously the cosmological and environmental understandings of indigenous peoples in Latin America, and worldwide. Contemporary philosophers of science have explained how the modern mentality, which assumes human control over natural resources, underlies extractivist processes that cause climate change. Can ‘other’ worlding practices help us to strip understandings of climate change and the environment back to their roots and imagine more sustainable strategies? Can taking such worlds seriously contribute to respecting existing sustainable lifestyles and ways of inhabiting the environment?
