Conservation Research Institute

 

The University of Cambridge’s Indigenous Studies Discussion Group (CRASSH Network 2021–22) and Heritage and Colonialism Discussion Group are seeking a speaker to participate in an in-person panel on Decolonizing Rights to Natural Heritage and the Environment on 27 April 2022, to be held at the Alison Richard Building, University of Cambridge.

We are specifically looking for someone involved in nature conservation work in order to provide a platform to bring together voices of Indigenous and non-Indigenous academics, alongside professionals working in the field. We are looking for someone who would be able to speak about their own perspectives and experiences working in conservation, reflecting on issues including the colonial pasts of conservation as a discipline, and potential issues/areas of awareness involved in practice while navigating this history and confronting neo-colonialism.

If you, or anyone you may know, would be interested, please contact Oliver Antczak (oa273@cam.ac.uk) and Alisa Santikarn (as2394@cam.ac.uk).
