Panel abstract:

More-than-Human Imperial Legacies and the Capitalocene


Scientific expeditions were crucial to projects of colonial expansion and contributed to accruing imperial prestige. The aspiration to dominate nature was intrinsic to imperial demonstrations of power that sought to conquer and tame far away landscapes inhabited by exoticised humans and non-humans as evidence of their superiority. The impressive amount of ethnographic objects, plants and animals collected - or rather amassed and appropriated -over the centuries built the foundation for natural history museums as well as botanical gardens and zoos across Europe. The way in which “nature” has subsequently been conserved, categorised, scientifically explained, and displayed in museums built solid legacies for the understanding and conceptualisation of “nature” today.


This panel sets to explore how imperial ecological legacies and narratives reverberate in the Anthropocene, or more precisely in the “Capitalocene” (Moore 2015). In light of dystopian scenarios of the future drawn by resource depletion, climate change, and a loss in biodiversity, it is more and more crucial to contextualise environmental destruction and violence and to trace their imperial trajectories. Accordingly, the panel questions meanings and consequences of the recently increased trend towards imperial nostalgia in countries of former empires. It focuses on how institutions, practices and ethics that originated under imperialism (natural history museums, forest management, hunting rights and animal diplomacy) still figure today in addressing environmental issues. Exploring the interconnections between memory and the environment, this panel stimulates debates on how intangible imperial legacies settle into our very notion of “nature” and our relations with non-human living beings (Kohn 2013). We invite therefore contributions considering how nature remembers and provides us with rich archives that may enlighten our understanding of imperial legacies today.



For any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Best wishes,

Annika Kirbis
