Escalations: A Comparative Ethnographic Study of Accelerating Change

Stine’s project Monsoonal Escalations in India and Beyond explores escalations at the interface between agriculture, climate and finance in relation to the monsoon in India.
Lars’ project Mining Frenzy and Escalating Economies in Mongolia explores how the imaginings of a future mining project in Mongolia becomes an imagined and ‘spectacular’ reference point that intensifies and escalates present actions and imaginations.
