Abstract:What are the relationships between Africans and the land upon which they live, work, profit, derive meaning and sustenance, and frame their everyday lives? Can we create an interdisciplinary conversation among scholars to generate new knowledge about how earth matters to people from different African countries engaged in specific land uses? The authors in this special issue address these questions. They generate a collective critical approach to sustainability studies, interrogate sustainability discourses, ask whose interests they serve, and observe how environmental, economic, social, and cultural sustainability interact. Contributions: Introduction: critical sustainability studies in sub-Saharan Africa (Mary Corbin Sies); The Gabon biodiversity program: a conservation research collaboration (Alfonso Alonso, Francisco Dallmeier, Lisa Korte, and Hadrien Vanthomme); Transforming conservation into cash? Nature tourism in southern Africa (Julie A. Silva and Lila K. Khatiwada, on Mozambique and Namibia); Cultural patrimony and heritage management in Mali: the old towns of Djenné and the Sanké Mon festival (Marie Jo Arnoldi); 'I haven't eaten if I don't have my soup and fufu': cultural preservation through food and foodways among Ghanaian migrants in the United States (Psyche Williams-Forson); Trash or treasure: global trade and the accumulation of e-waste in Lagos, Nigeria (Jack Sullivan); African photographers and the look of (un)sustainability in the African landscape (Karen E. Milbourne). [ASC Leiden abstract]
