How do artistic and multimedia creations in water-related conflicts represent and support transformative or restorative initiatives? CLAMOR will answer this question by cataloguing and analyzing cultural artefacts used in environmental conflicts: films, plastic arts (including banners), music and songs, and associated multimedia. To narrow down the action without disregarding societal and gender significance, the project focuses on conflicts over wetlands and coal, both tightly connected with waterscape production.
This project aims to improve theory and methods for the analysis of water-related conflict by understanding the role played by cultural expressions, artistic creation and multimedia.
The objectives of the project are to:
CLAMOR a project engaged with communities who defend themselves from distributive injustices in burdens of pollution and access to resources. The project will innovatively use mixed methods, combining in-depth case studies with data intensive social science approaches.
The University of California, Berkeley is a partner in this project.
