Strategies for temporally rational ecological governance Political terms and ecological cycles Next budget and next election; dominant time spans in politics From the early nineteenth century onwards, the dominant political view of time was one of continuous ‘progress’ with the state at the centre of change (Ekengren 1998:30). This linear conception of time is, however, just one possible view. Political time can also be seen as (series of) distinct events or as connected points that have

In the mid-1990s, the crime scene toolkit was revolutionised by the introduction of DNA-based analyses such as the polymerase chain reaction, low copy number DNA analysis, short-tandem repeat typing, pulse-field gel electrophoresis and variable number tandem repeat. Since then, methodological advances in other disciplines, especially molecular microbial ecology, can now be adapted for cutting-edge applications in forensic contexts. Despite several studies and discussions, there is, however, currently very little evidence of these techniques adoption at the contemporary crime scene. Consequently, this article discusses some of the popular omics and their current and potential exploitations in the forensic ecogenomics of body decomposition in a crime scene. Thus, together with published supportive findings and discourse, knowledge gaps are identified. These then justify the need for more comprehensive, directed, concerted and global research towards state-of-the-art microecophysiology method application and/or adaptation for subsequent successful exploitations in this additional context of microbial forensics.

of selfhood and right to participate in this world. Moreover, violence is absolutely integral to the markings of subjectivity, setting apart claims about identity, along with notions of civility and barbarism. Violence is always mediated through expressed dichotomies between acceptable and unacceptable behaviours, between the right to punish and the intolerable transgression, between the force of normative law and the terror of the minority. In fact, there is an entire political ecology at work in the very diagnosis of something as political violence in itself

An ecocritical examination of the birds of Bergman

expression in Timothy Morton’s 2007 book, Ecology without Nature , where he describes a ‘poetics of ambience’ that is the distinguishing feature of what he calls ‘ecomimesis’. To put it simply, ecomimesis is a representational practice in literature and art which attempts to recreate the experience of nature, as when Wordsworth writes about daffodils or a film incorporates images, light, and sound to give the impression of a particular place or time in nature. Ecomimesis, writes Morton, ‘involves a poetics of

inject another voice – of non-human or more-than-human material ecologies – further expanding Fisher and Tronto’s world care through contemporary post-human and new materialist thinking to explore the potential for affective care in material labours of repair. Emboldened by a post-human new materialist understanding of agency, we suggest that this is not just a species activity, but a labour co-performed by a caring ecology of ontologically diverse agents ( Figure 6.1 ).

orchard’s green space. At the time of writing only 37 hectares of orchard remain, and the Ministry of Ecology protects just over eight of those. Many of the remaining walls (17 kilometres of the original 600) are in disrepair. Nevertheless, the fruit persists. Granted use of 800 square metres within the Murs à pêches (including the building formerly occupied by the auto garage), Fer à Coudre co-founders Charnay, Dubus, and Sophie Belotte were impressed by the resilience of the area’s plant life. They decided, in Dubus’s words, to ‘recount, via the realisation of iron

for individual health, spiritual wellbeing and a ‘more natural lifestyle’ (Emerich 2011: 137). Looking at LOHAS advertising and trade magazines, one begins to suspect that the true office of sustainability may have been to make deep ecology safe for consumer capitalism. While these two versions of sustainability are in many ways quite distinct, both indicate just how deeply the concept has become ingrained in the political, economic and social status quo. They highlight how talk of sustainability has become a way of expressing our desire to change things so as to
