Edith Kauffer : in "Wednesdays of the Anthropocene" - Ecole Urbaine de Lyon

On The December 9, 2020

Exploring the conflicts arising from mining

18h30 à 19h30 - Ecole urbaine de Lyon - Online

As part of the Wednesdays of the Anthropocene (Season 4) Edith Kauffer explores the conflicts linked to sediment extraction.

The notion of "politics" makes it possible to explore the conflicts around the extraction of sediments, it also facilitates the understanding of the role of political actors at all territorial scales.
Edith Kauffer accomplishes this exercise using the sediments of the Usumacinta River, which forms the border between Mexico and Guatemala.
