African Observatory for Environmental Humanities

CAS Researchers: Professor James Ogude and Dr Tafadzwa Mushonga

Humanities for the Environment is a global initiative of regional Observatories that aim to bring out how the humanities may contribute to pro-environmental behaviour.

The African Observatory for Environmental Humanities at the Centre for the Advancement of Scholarship, University of Pretoria seeks to harness and mobilise indigenous forms of nature conservation as a way of engaging with what has come to be described as the anthropocene age. The study at the Centre focuses on research themes that will include but not be limited to, colonial modernity, food systems and the environment; extractivism, disease ecologies and climate change, and climate justice and environmental movements.
