Projekt: Translations of Forest Ecologies in Sierra Leone

David’s research regionally focuses on Sierra Leone, where he investigates human-nonhuman-entanglements surrounding current investments in logging and their underlying infrastructures with their techno-scientific, as well as juridico-political and ethical dimensions. Inquiring into globally circulating models of forestry and their local materializations, he asks what futures for planetary health they entail. Here, David engages in ecological anthropology’s shifts from ecology to ecologies to the planetary on the one hand, and from adaptation to translation to care on the other hand. His research crosses disciplinary boundaries between anthropology, environmental studies, postcolonial studies, development studies, science and technology studies and the study of biomedicine. After having studied Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Halle, Germany (Bachelor and Master level), he joined the Graduate School “Society and Culture in Motion”, University of Halle in October 2018, where he pursues a PhD. He is a member of the LOST Research Network   .
