The Faculty of Natural Science wrote an article about my latest research on large-scale land acquisitions and water use in Africa, and how land acquisitions might contribute to increased conflicts over water resources. See the article here.
I had the privilege to publish a blog post about art and science at the ENTITLE blog.
ENTITLE is a European network of research and training on political ecology that brings together scholars and fellows from a variety of institutions and disciplinary and geographical backgrounds. They are working in solidarity with social-ecological movements, people analysing and communities facing various forms of exploitation and dispossession from open-cast mining to land-grabbing, from toxic contamination to murder.

I had the opportunity to arrange an exhibition at the National Museum and House of Culture, in Dar Es Salaam, showing the paintings that were made in Tanzanian villages where land has been acquired by foreign agribusinesses. The paintings were made by local farmers, fishermen, and pastoralists, with instructions from the Tanzanian artist Joseph Mwalyombo.
Fokus Forskning highlighted my research in their brief article on insights through art.
My research was highlighted in the Lund University Magazine (LUM), read the article online here. It is about using art for scientific research about socio-environmental change in the context of large-scale land acquisitions.
I had the privilege to contribute with data about global large-scale land acquisitions to an illustration made in Scientific American. Here is a link to the brief article written by Mark Fischetti.
