’Epistemologies of Land’ Webcast Series – Eduardo Machicado – 11 June 2021 | 15:00-17:00

Abstract: The ‘Epistemologies of Land’ webcast series will host international experts for discussions on the epistemology of land, ahead of a related publication which will highlight the role of the land on, and with which, human relations are enacted and how this land affects the knowledge that is generated and brought to use in social relations. The events are open to interested graduate and postgraduate researchers.

Speaker: Eduardo Machicado is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Queen’s College, University of Cambridge and a Geoarcheologist at the Cambridge Archaeology Unit.

His research focuses on how human adaptation to catastrophic environmental change has become one of the most relevant topics in the news today. For his PhD and Postdoctoral research, he has worked to bridge archaeology and environmental science. With the generous support of the Gates Cambridge Trust, the Board of Graduate Studies, and Queens’ College, several expeditions have been set up to gather data on the impact of early deforestation, the development of intensive agriculture, and urbanisation in the prehistoric world.

Eduardo has been particularly interested in the natural and cultural history of wetlands like the tropical savannas at the edge of Amazonia, and, in collaboration with the Cambridge Archaeological Unit, the coastal plains of the Fenland in eastern England. In collaboration with other prestigious research institutions, his current scientific work is attempting to provide a more nuanced perspective on the effect of climate change in economic development and social and political conflict.

Attendance is free but spaces may be limited, so please email to reserve a space in the Zoom audience. Please be aware that we will take a recording of this event, which may include any questions and responses delivered by the audience.
