Material Practices: Earth in the Making

This first research area of the Anthropocene umbrella project investigates the development of particular knowledge economies that concern resource extraction, respective resource flows, and transformations of energy systems, as well as the changing interfaces between human bodies and the environment and the particular human-environment interaction within agricultural practices and traditions. It also explores the material practices and knowledge infrastructures that constitute resource and energy systems, both historical and current.
