Terra Nullius: Repossessing the existent
How does India’s new coal geography harness and reconfigure existing infrastructural arrangements to suit the needs of coal? In the second part of this series on India’s new coal geography, we examine this question in the context of Goa.
While India has become a hotspot for renewable energy investments, a new Indian coal geography has also emerged since the early 2000s. Its materialisation promises to lock India into continued reliance on coal for the foreseeable future, with a concomitant rise in carbon emissions. In part one of this two-part series, we look at the big picture of India’s new coal geography and its impact.
Human diets are rapidly meatifying. This involves complex rural transformations and changing food regimes, where Asian countries are taking centre stage.

I was thrilled to be back in my home city of Maracay at the beginning of this year when I went to Venezuela for fieldwork. It had been over 4 years since I had been in the country. During those four years –as the central bank statistics later confirmed – the economy had shrunk more than half, and millions of people had left the desperate conditions.
Throughout Central America, irregular rainfall coupled with unusually high temperatures is placing additional stresses on already compromised environments. Consistent to the literature on climate change and its associated impacts, storms in the region have become increasingly intense, dropping as much as a month’s worth of rainfall in a single day. Yet for the majority of locations the isolated nature of these storms has led to record-long dry-spells.
The Green New Deal has serious implications for rural landscapes. In fact, GND is not all that “green” and risks exaggerating extractive activities.
How can we understand the complexity of the contemporary rural world, and its entanglements with the urban? The Rural transformations in the new century research group is pleased to present our new blog.
