In recent decades, people living in Southeast Asia have witnessed major shifts from predominantly subsistence agriculture to industrializing economies, with attendant changes in migration, crop production systems, and major infrastructure (roads, dams, industrial estates). This webinar will explore how communities in the region are experiencing the economic, social, and cultural dislocations of these transformations. We will focus on forests, rivers, documentarians and writers, and Imaging Environmental Futures.
