1. Darwish, Siad, 1981-. “Country of rubbish”: waste and the environmental legacies of authoritarianism in post-revolutionary Tunisia.

Degree: PhD, Anthropology, 2017, Rutgers University

Primarily, this dissertation explores the link between dictatorship and pollution in Tunisia. Specifically, it argues that Ben Ali’s authoritarian neoliberalism produced unequal socio-natural relations between waste, certain bodies and landscapes, sustained and concealed these inequalities through the manipulation of data, corruption, infrastructure and a facade of state environmentalism. It charts the emergence of this socio-spatial inequality from colonization through to structural adjustment programs and thereby interprets them in the context of the uneven social, economic and environmental costs of industries and global markets. The study demonstrates that state environmentalism was a particular governing fiction that was central to the survival of the regime and which together with widespread corruption shaped environmental governance under Ben Ali’s rule. It then concludes that the waste crisis that followed the revolution was a rupture of political fictions that brought public secrets viscerally to the fore. This revelation lead to struggles over truths and meanings of the dictatorial past. Due to the physical ubiquity of waste and the reemergence of marginalized communities associated with it, this conflict was expressed in the language of waste, thereby shaping the post-revolutionary experience of Tunisia and turning it into the balad el-zible (country of rubbish).

2. Baskind-Wing, Sharon L., 1980. Reclaiming rural character: conservation, conflict, and the nostalgic landscapes of Orcas Island, Washington.

Degree: PhD, Anthropology, 2009, Rutgers University

This dissertation takes an ethnographic approach to examining the meanings of rural character on Orcas Island, in San Juan County, Washington. In spite of the challenges facing productive agriculture in the county, achieving rural character remains the stated goal of county planning efforts, environmental groups, affordable housing advocates, and private landowners. Drawing from the anthropology of landscape, political ecology, and critical readings of memory and history, this project examines the definitions of rurality in a place where farming and other types of labor have been overshadowed by real estate speculation and tourism. More broadly, this work argues that land management is a highly subjective process that engages aesthetic preferences, popular ecological models, cultural conceptions of property, and concerns with labor and affordability. In particular, looking at conservation easements can highlight the ways in which nostalgic longings for particular landscapes can be elevated to the level of political economic conflict, in which only certain individuals are able to shape the land according to personally or culturally shared visions.
