Conserving Culture, Pastures, and Wildlife in an age of Land Scarcity

Professor Allison Hahn
Department of Communication Studies
Baruch College

12:30-1:30 pm
Room NVC 8-210

Light refreshments served.

Global trends and local particularities of conflicts over land use and ownership, especially in communities that have traditionally moved across wide swaths of land with their herds, but have been confined too much smaller spaces due to land division and development. 

We'll examine three contemporary case studies: Maasai herder access to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, the Mongolian herder’s case against Oyu Tolgoi mines, and the Standing Rock Sioux’s protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

FREE & Open To The Public
