‘Gardens of Empire’ is a digital conversation on the colonial legacy of the (natural) sciences and its pervasive manifestations in museums, archives, and collections. Thinking through plants, herbariums, gardens, specimens, and with extractive zones and social ecologies, the conversation will look at the entanglement of knowledge production and colonial extractivism.
Lectures and conversations by Ana María Gómez López and Minakshi Menon, hosted by Yolanda Rother.
