Jumping the fence: transgressing knowledge enclosures of the land-food-environment nexus

Project: Internally funded project

Project Details


This project explores social tensions and ecological implications of both incumbent agricultural monocultures and of the transition of land use towards large scale ‘green’ projects. By considering the inequitable access to land, political power, finance and technology that are often masked by ‘greening’ projects, the project brings creative and transformative methods derived from traditional communities of Brazil into dialogue with community and academic practitioners in Scotland and the Amazon region of Brazil. It does so to creatively investigate disruption to unjust but apparently ‘locked-in’ land use practices towards diversified land and agrifood systems that promise improved human and environmental health outcomes.
