‘Epistemologies of Land’ is a series of webcasts organised by gloknos team member Felix Anderl (Peace Institute). This series will host international experts for discussions on the epistemology of land, ahead of a related publication which will highlight the role of the land on, and with which, human relations are enacted and how this land affects the knowledge that is generated and brought to use in social relations. The events are open to interested graduate and postgraduate researchers.
Eduardo Machicado is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Queen’s College, University of Cambridge and a Geoarcheologist at the Cambridge Archaeology Unit. His research focuses on how human adaptation to catastrophic environmental change has become one of the most relevant topics in the news today. For his PhD and Postdoctoral research, he has worked to bridge archaeology and environmental science. With the generous support of the Gates Cambridge Trust, the Board of Graduate Studies, and Queens’ College, several expeditions have been set up to gather data on the impact of early deforestation, the development of intensive agriculture, and urbanisation in the prehistoric world.
