Thinking Fragments: Adisciplinary reflections on Feminism and Environmental Justice

Kiran Asher

Abstract


Feminisms and environmental justice are some of the names of struggles to understand nature-culture linkages and conceptualize just worlds for non-humans and their human kin.  In this paper, I revisit my journey of doing environmental justice research, i.e. of my feminist scientific practice in Asia and Latin America.  In this retrospective telling I highlight how gender, political economy, and race were and remain fundamental in producing the subjects and objects of my research and analysis.  I discuss how an implicit feminism helped me grapple with the complex nature-culture linkages I observed in the field.   Postcolonial and marxist insights supplement and complement feminisms in the questions I pose as we attempt to imagine new nature-cultures.
