Plant politics in Pakistan


Plant politics in Pakistan: funded by the RGS/IBG, this collaborative project explores the socio-ecological politics of plants as lively commodities in urban Pakistan. We are interested in how plants circulate in gated communities, private households and municipalities, and the implications for social justice and environmental sustainability in one of the world’s most rapidly-urbanising nations.

Papers in progress:

  • Soft Pakistan
  • Caring for a vegetal commons: Plants and the limits of posthuman ethics
  • Vegetal capital: Dying commodities, plant labour and nursery power
