Book Launch: “Misreading the Bengal Delta””

September 13, 2021 - 17:00-18:30

The Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Oslo is arranging the book launch of Camile Dewan’s book “Misreading the Bengal Delta. How Development Simplifications have failed environment and society in coastal Bangladesh” at Littteraturhuset in Oslo.

Combining environmental history and ethnographic fieldwork with development professionals, rural farmers, and landless women, Dewan’s book critiques development narratives of Bangladesh as a “climate change victim.” It examines how development actors repackage colonial-era modernizing projects, which have caused severe environmental effects, as climate-adaptation solutions.
