📢 Circulation — a conversation with Nishat Awan

Episode 7,  Apr 04, 11:00 AM

In this EURO–VISION podcast episode, together with Dr Nishat Awan, we consider how resource depletion affects local communities, as well as the wider infrastructures of extraction which they are a part of.

Description
In our last episode, we considered how institutions such as the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) are managing the extinction of the bluefin tuna, which is emptying the seas and leading to the forced displacement of fisherfolk, namely, that are traditionally living from the wildlife in those seas. In this episode we consider how this resource depletion affects those communities, as well as the wider infrastructures of extraction which they are a part of. Together with Dr Nishat Awan, who leads the research project Topological Atlas at TU Delft. Topological Atlas produces visual counter-geographies that combine digital mapping and storytelling techniques with a participative approach, attending to those who are at the margins of traditional geopolitical inquiry.
