Panel One :
Negotiating with Giants
In the first of two panels on wild elephant relations, presenters examine the problem of "conflict" through media analysis, long term interdisciplinary data, life stories, and indigenous traditions. The papers foreground the importance of accounting for individual behaviour and cultural variation when understanding how human and elephant negotiate living together both in a shared landscape and through the challenges of the Anthropocene.
This panel will be chaired by Maan Barua, University Lecturer from the Department of Geography, Cambridge University.
