Collecting, saving and securing seeds has become a global concern
Annika Rabo, Professor Emerita of Social Anthropology, and Beppe Karlsson, Professor of Social Anthropology, are the editors of the newly published book Seedways - The circulation, control and care of plants in a warming world.
The book Seedways - The circulation, control and care of plants in a warming world is about seeds and why and how seeds matter today, as in the past. In a historical perspective the co-evolution of plants and humans can be traced through myths, rituals and cultural practices. In our present-day world of accelerating climate change, expansion of monocultural plantations and loss of biodiversity, collecting, saving and securing seeds has become a global concern. The volume is the result of a two-day international symposium held at the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities in Stockholm 2018.
