Reflecting on crisis narratives in forests: Anthropological perspectives

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

Crises do not always receive the same attention. In tackling crisis narratives and responses, how do crises gain attention – and from whom? When do they lose that attention?

Panelists will speak to the conditions of contestation in their site among the various stakeholders, balancing the coverage of novel, emerging threats to tropical forests and crises that are chronic and cyclical. They bring to the panel a wealth of experience with their interlocutors from Malaysia, Nigeria and Kachin state in Burma.

Panel members:

  • Lye Tuck-Po, Universiti Sains Malaysia
  • Pauline von Hellermann, Goldsmiths, University of London
  • Laur Kiik, University of Oxford
  • Moderator: Al Lim, Yale

Produced by Yale ISTF
