In the Library Talk: Human/Animal (Tigers) Relations in North East India
Tigers, our brothers: Human-animal relations, identity and development in Northeast India
Mr Sajhil Nijhawan, currently a doctoral candidate at the Department of Anthropology, University College London (UCL) and Zoological Society of London (ZSL), will give an illustrated talk on how the relationship between culture and nature, esp tigers, in an indigenous community in the region has developed. In addition, he will look at how this relationship is changing with increased presence of the Indian govt through army mobilization, large scale dam development and by linking this previously isolated region of Arunachal Pradesh with the wider market economy.
