This CFP begins from the assumption that modernity and modernization have had deeply contested legacies in the Global South.  While postcolonial frames have elaborated several rich possibilities to engage with these legacies, we are interested in papers that interrogate and/or extend postcolonial frameworks for thinking about modernization and modernity from the perspective of environmental and ecological questions.
