After our follow-up emails, my sense is that your question has two major concerns: how to define your approach to your research (what theoretical framework best fits your interests) and how to identify instances of colonialism that can help you explore human/non-human distinctions made during specific colonial regimes.

Because you have access to academic texts, research databases, and electronic journals through your college library, I looked for resources that you might be able to access at your institution. I conducted a preliminary search using Academic Search Premier (an interdisciplinary resear ch database) and Google Scholar, since these tools retrieve results from a number of disciplines. While I didn’t find any articles that exactly address your research question, I did find articles that might be helpful when read together. I’ve included a list of article and book citations below, with content or bibliographies you can consult as you expand your search.

QUESTION: Ecology and Post-Colonialism Theory

question / pregunta: 

I am working on an article that attempts to think Colonialism and Imperialism as iterations of the ontological constitution of human vs. non-human. I would like help tracking down writers who deal with the correlation between the circumscription of the colonized peoples/lands and the circumscription of non-human life. Feel free to get in touch with more questions. And thanks for the work you all do. It is so important!
