Forest Ethography

Route to Santa FeI am curremt shuttling back and forth between Sta Fe, Nueva Vizcaya and Metro-Manila collecting data.

Meanwhile, I am parking ethnographic notes and links at Forest Ethnography on Tumbr.

My┬áresearch topic is on the organizing of sustainable forestry from an organizational discourse perspective intersecting with postcolonial theory, especially in terms of Homi Bhabha’s concept of hybridity.

The site of study is the Kalahan Reserve within the Ikalahan/Kalanguya ancestral domain. I’m hoping to understand how hybridity works to construct new institutions through discourse.
