SAC presents: Nosheen Ali

341 Eggers Hall

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

This talk  will examine the aesthetics and politics of nature in the constitution of state and region in Pakistan. Ali examines how the strategic, border region of the Northern Areas has been constructed and contained through nationalist discourses of scenic landscapes as well as state practices of biodiversity conservation. Both processes have served to deny regional identity and rights, while entrenching state power as well as a neoliberal commodification of nature in the Northern Areas.  She will also discuss the limits and possibilities of contesting such processes of rule through locally grounded ecological imaginings and interventions.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
