Culture and Environment Revisited

(p.348) Conclusion
Living Between Juniper and Palm

Ben Campbell

Oxford University Press

Rather than conceptualize culture abstractly as something with influence on other domains of life, or seeing cultural worlds in collision, the use of cultural analysis is asking questions about meanings and relationships as seen from actors’ perspectives. These illuminate processes of change, and consequences in the politics of difference. Culture in the Himalayan environment has been opened up in this book to give vantage points on the diverse ways and contexts in which people bring community into being, on the assembling of actors and localities, on the inclusions and exclusions, the bringing closer and the rendering distant that vitalize the possibilities of social interaction and subsistence in a part of the world characterized by transition and intermediacy. Cultural dimensions will not disappear; they will only become increasingly complex.

Keywords:   eco-governance, indigenous rights, resistance, human and non-human collectives
