[image: =F0=9F=93=85] June 12th, 16.00 CEST (15.00 BST) [image: =F0=9F=93=8D] On Zoom [image: =F0=9F=8E=99=EF=B8=8F] MISREADING CLIMATE CHANGE IN BANGLADESH: FRO= M FLOODS AND FOOD SECURITY TO GENDERED MIGRATION by Dr. Camelia Dewan Please join the talk at: Perilously close to sea level and vulnerable to floods, erosion, and cyclones, Bangladesh is one of the top recipients of development aid earmarked for climate change adaptation. Yet to what extent do adaptation projects address local needs and concerns? Combining environmental history and ethnographic fieldwork with development professionals, rural farmers, and landless women, Camelia Dewan critiques development narratives of Bangladesh as a =E2=80=9Cclimate change victim=E2=80=9D. She will draw on t= he concept of =E2=80=98climate reductive translations=E2=80=99 to understand current misr= eadings of floods, food security and migration in coastal Bangladesh that create flawed causal narratives that ultimately risk exacerbating climatic threats and structural inequalities. Dr. Camelia Dewan is an environmental anthropologist focusing on the anthropology of development and Assistant Professor in Cultural Anthropology at Uppsala University (Sweden).

Kind regards, Maarja Kaaristo On behalf of the AnthroMOB team
