“In the Realm of Untamed Waters: Thoughts on the Deep Ecology of the Ganges Delta”
In this talk Sudipta Sen examines the lesser-known histories and lifeworlds of the Ganges and the stories of those who have for generations redefined their lives in relation to the river, and who are now foremost among the victims and survivors of the climate change crisis.
