People and their Forests

February 22, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Mānoa Campus, On Zoom

In recent decades, people living in the Lower Mekong Region have witnessed major shifts from predominantly subsistence agriculture to industrializing economies, with attendant changes in migration, crop production systems, and major infrastructure (roads, dams, industrial estates). This series of four webinars will explore how communities in the region are experiencing the economic, social, and cultural dislocations of these transformations. We will focus on forests, rivers, documentarians and writers, and Imaging Environmental Futures. Speakers: Ahmad Dhiaulhaq (Senior Researcher, Research Institute for Humanity and Nature); Micah R. Fisher (Fellow, East-West Center, Research Program); Naw Pe Tha Law (Advocate, Chiang Mai); Courtney Work (Associate Prof, National Chengchi University); Moderator: Daniel Ahlquist (Assistant Professor, James Madison College, Michigan State University) Part of the Southeast Asia in Transition webinar series co-hosted with the UH Center for Chinese Studies, the East-West Center, Michigan State University and Chiang Mai University.
