God Mountains and Fengshui Forests: Sacred/Secular Dialectics and the Fate of Rural Tibetan and Han Communities in China’s Ecological Civilization
Thursday, October 19, 2017

Animism and vitalism have captured the imagination of post-structural theorists, ontologically-inclined ethnographers, and several cultural geographers. This presentation draws on works by scholars who have explored the divide, or dialectic, between sacred and secular space (Lefebvre, Foucault, Viveiros de Castro, and others) to explore the contemporary political ecology of Tibetan sacred mountains (gzhi bdag) and Han sacred forests (fengshuilin) as China strives to build a post-industrial Ecological Civilization (Shengtai Wenming).
