A landscape of dispossession: Interrogating the production of space in Southern Myanmar
October 24, 2019 - 15:00-16:30
With the emergence of Myanmar’s ‘ceasefire capitalism’ from the late 1980s, the politics of geography – that is, who gets what, where and why, and who loses where? – were significantly reworked through spatial reconfigurations of resource extraction and capital accumulation. While much contemporary work analyses such spatial reconfigurations through the prism of resource frontiers or resource grabs, Mads Barbesgaard in this seminar draws on scholarship by political-economic geographers to interrogate the production of the Northern Tanintharyi landscape in Southern Myanmar.
