AfterLab with Annu Jalais: Making ethnographic sense of beasts, people, wild environments

An exploration of the “non-human” in various Asian cultures highlights why ethics and politics are so important on any study of the non-human

Thank you Annu Jalais, Assistant Professor at the National University of Singapore’s South Asian Studies and Comparative Asian Studies Departments for an interesting presentation on Making ethnographic sense of beasts, people, wild environments.

Annu's interdisciplinary research and teaching experience focus on the human-nonhuman interface, environment, and climate change, religious identity and migration, caste, and social justice. Her primary region of specialization is South Asia, specifically Bangladesh and India, and her secondary zone of interest encompasses Southeast Asia and China, especially around Indian Ocean exchanges in the religious and cultural realms. She is the author of two books, a few articles and is currently collaborating with artists, scholars and Sundarbans islanders on developing two projects: the ‘Southern Collective’ and the ‘Asian Bestiary’.
