Guest speaker: Rebecca Elmhirst, University of Brighton, United Kingdom

Rebecca Elmhirst is a leading feminist political ecologist and human geographer with two decades of research and teaching experience on the struggles over environmental governance, migration and social justice in the global South. Her work explores new ways to rethink feminist political ecology by linking theories associated with ‘material feminisms’ to empirical work on mobility, environmental change and gender in Southeast Asia.

Presented as part of the Ecologies on the Edge Programme. This event is made possible with the support of the York Centre for Asian Research, Asian Institute (Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto), and the Department of Geography at York University.
