Land, Life and Emotional Landscapes: Politics of Survival at the Margins of Bangladesh
"Land, Life and Emotional Landscapes: Politics of Survival at the Margins of Bangladesh" is an in-depth ethnographic study based on 24 months of intensive fieldwork. The study analyses the struggles over land in northeastern border regions of Bangladesh from the perspective of small-scale indigenous farmers who have already lost or are threatened with losing their land. Theoretically and empirically the research project is positioned at the intersection of anthropology of violence and anthropology of life working out both the micro manifestations of violence but also the different modalities of agency of the affected farmers and thus shedding light on life under heightened uncertainty.
