 seminar posterDisease and health are increasingly understood in relation to complex human, environmental,
and inter-species interactions. Histories and Ecologies of Health seeks to explore this human
non-human entanglement, tracing histories of ecological thought to show how conceptualizations of ‘ecology’ have shaped scientific, medical, and health practices – and more broadly, the management of ‘nature.’ Drawing on case studies from East and Southeast Asia to Central America, participants consider the expanding and contracting temporal and spatial scales of competing ecological imaginaries. They reflect on the political and technological forces that determine where ecological borders get drawn and how risks are defined. And they ask: under what conditions do ecologies become visible?
