The Motherland and her dependent colonial offspring. (William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1883)
The Role of Coloniality and Ecological Imperialism in Creating Disparities and Solutions in Periphery Countries
Having grown up in ‘the Global South’, I have always been aware of the tensions between the imposed systems of governance that were instilled by colonial powers and the ways in which they have impacted many facets of society. When comparing these viewpoints to those of indigenous people, with regards to the treatment of the nonhuman world, one can see the origins of these tensions and the ways in which they have come to manifest themselves in the physical and nonhuman world. Therefore, my area of interest seeks to explore and analyse the ways in which the human and the nonhuman world have come to influence and shape each other, how they interact and the role and origins of social constructions within these interactions.
