Art and Research about a Diffracted Pacific Island

Katerina Teaiwa

May 9, 2022

For over twenty years I’ve been imagining and producing my Pacific research and scholarship through the performing and visual arts while regularly resisting publishing about most of that process. While discussions of method are there in my 2002 PhD thesis, much of this lack of reflection on the methods is a matter of time and energy and also a resistance to the norms of scholarly discipline and career strategy—avoiding top journals, refusing to play the publishing game, while being regularly inundated with requests to contribute to publishing and editorial endeavours. However, this has left a gap in my own work on methodologies and in sharing approaches with early career scholars in Pacific studies and other fields.

Dictation of the Flower

Manisha Anjali

May 9, 2022

When we left the mother in our country of birth, she was sitting at the kitchen table, sucking on chicken bones, and talking about songs that were hidden in the roots of banana trees. When we left the mother in our country of birth, she said, you will see me again when the sea is on fire. 


Climate Change: How Senegal's colonial history made it more vulnerable

Nick Bernards

May 9, 2022

‘The effects of climate change often fall hardest on the poorest – and smallholder farmers in developing countries are among those most at risk. With limited savings, limited access to credit, and uncertain access to land, water and so on, poorer farmers are unable to cope with increasingly frequent natural disasters, bad growing seasons or the degradation of agricultural land.

An Indigenous Feminist’s Take On The Ontological Turn

Zoe Todd

May 12, 2022

In this essay, Zoe Todd asks how anthropology can adopt a decolonial approach that incorporates and acknowledges the critical scholarship of Indigenous thinkers whose work and labour informs many current trends in Euro-Western scholarship, activism and socio-political discourse. She also queries how to address ongoing structural colonialism within the academy in order to ensure that marginalised voices are heard within academic discourses.

Errant Journal 2. Slow Violence

Errant Journal

May 12, 2022

This issue sets off from the term ‘slow violence’ because we believe that the relation with violence should be front and centre in the discussions of the ‘climate crisis’ in order to bring the rather abstract concept of ´climate change´ back in relation to the underlying necropolitics. Moving away from a universal narrative and addressing the different roles people, companies, and nation states play, also opens up the possibility to address the call for climate justice; a topic addressed in a special section of this issue edited by Radha D’Souza and Jonas Staal.
