Infrastructural relations: Water, political power and the rise of a new 'despotic regime'

Titre: On the Matter of Time Auteur:Strang, Veronica Sujet:Time and Space ; Materiality ; History ; Cultural Worldviews ; Aboriginal Australia ; Interdisciplinarity ; Sciences (General) Description:
Drawing on several disciplinary areas, this article considers diverse cultural concepts of time, space, and materiality. It explores historical shifts in ideas about time, observing that these have gone full circle, from visions in which time and space were conflated, through increasingly divergent linear understandings of the relationship between them, to their reunion in contemporary notions of space-time. Making use of long-term ethnographic research and explorations of the topic of Time at Durham University's Institute of Advanced Study (2012-13), the article considers Aboriginal Australian ideas about relationality and the movement of matter through space and time. It asks why these earliest explanations of the cosmos, though couched in a wholly different idiom, seem to have more in common with the theories proposed by contemporary physicists than with the ideas that dominated the period between the Holocene and the Anthropocene. The analysis suggests that...

Titre: Representing Water: visual anthropology and divergent trajectories in human environmental relations Auteur:Strang, Veronica Sujet:Water Beings ; Cosmology ; Human-Environmental Relations ; Representations of Water ; Seres Aquáticos ; Cosmologia ; Relações Humano-Ambientais ; Representações Da Água ; Anthropology Description:
This paper describes research concerned with visual representations of water beings and their capacity to articulate human-environmental relationships. Water beings (such as rainbow serpents and taniwhas) play a role in many different cultural cosmologies, most particularly those oriented towards ‘nature religions’ in which land and water scapes are seen as being animated by sentient beings. Analyses of these visual images, and their transformations over time, suggest that as reflection of cosmological beliefs and values, they can illuminate the past and provide useful insights into key changes in human relationships with water. As representations of the worldviews of particular groups, they also have a vital function in contemporary debates about environmental management and the ownership and control of water resources. Drawing on examples in Australia and New Zealand, this paper therefore considers the role of such images as temporal indicators of change, and as symbolic representations of subaltern cosmologies in post-colonial societies. It also examines the potential implications of the research for theory and method in visual anthropology. By retaining an ethnographically situated approach it aims to demonstrate that transformations in human relations with water, as expressed through visual imagery of water beings, continue to direct contemporary conflicts over water ownership, management and use.
