"Contesting Nature in Central Asia"
Central Asian Studies Institute (CASI) Fifth Annual Conference "Contesting Nature in Central Asia" at the American University of Central Asia. Date: September 16-17, 2016. The relationship between humans and their environments is central to both natural and social sciences, yet the fundamental distinction between ‘nature’ and ‘culture’ is the reason behind segregation of knowledge into two distinct spheres. ‘Nature’ is often utilised as shorthand for unchanging laws of existence, the inexorable materiality of being, for inevitability, determinism and teleology.
