Alexiades - Chapter 09
'Ordenar El Pensamiento'
Place-Making and the Moral Management of Resources in a Multi-Ethnic Territory, Amazonas, Colombia
chapter connects the ways people signify and use the natural
environment to specific projects of identity and place-making. In
contrast to the view of cultural models of the environment — that is,
the ways people relate to, signify, and manage the natural environment
— as homoeostatic or shared structures, I conceive of them as socially
mediated and emergent forms of knowledge that are created and recreated
in social contexts.
