About

Environmental anthropologist, whose work focuses on the environmental relations of local communities, especially in South and Southeast Asia.  Over the past 40 years, he has spent more than a dozen years in the field in Asia, carrying out long-term research on human ecology in Borneo and Java, developing government research capacity in Indonesia, and advising the Pakistan Forest Service on social forestry policies.  Current research and teaching interests include the anthropology of climate change and the cultural and political aspects of natural hazards, disasters, and resource degradation; indigenous environmental knowledge and practice; the study of developmental and environmental institutions, discourses, and movements; the history and sociology of the environment-related sciences; multispecies ethnography; and ethnicity & museology.
