Re-Legislating the Soil: Enclosure and Exception at the Amazon Frontiers

Re-Legislating the Soil: Enclosure and Exception at the Amazon Frontiers In 2009 a series of mobilizations articulated by indigenous groups took control over practically the entire Peruvian Amazon. Geographically distributed but politically articulated, these manifestations were fighting against the institution of a new Forest Law that would transform not only the juridical framework that governs Amazonian lands but potentially alter the very ecological nature of the forest itself. This text traces some of the lines of this conflict in order to discuss the relations between sovereignty and nature, government and environment, politics and ecology. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
