"Creating Landscapes of Coexistence: Do Conservation Interventions Promote Tolerance of Lions in Human-dominated Landscapes?"

This paper uses a comparative case study approach to explore the individual and societal desire to maintain current lion populations alongside communities in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, Tanzania’s Ruaha National Park, and Kenya’s southern Maasailand.

"Zimbabwe’s Chinhoyi Caves: 1845-1945"

This study historicises environmental issues at the Chinhoyi Caves that are of contemporaneous resonance with the ecological crisis faced by the modern world. It deals with important themes like water-resource management, indigenous knowledge and its efficacy in the preservation of nature, colonialism and its environmental implications, forest use and deforestation, dislocation and displacement of indigenous people, and the interaction of the local with the global.

CAMPFIRE Project Zimbabwe

In an effort to promote the longevity of endangered species and the financial stability of communities in Zimbabwe, the Communal Areas Management Programme for Indigenous Resources (CAMPFIRE) was founded. Hunters can pay for licensure to shoot one prized game animal in Zimbabwe, with proceeds going to wildlife conservation.


"Contestation over Resources: The Farmer-Miner Dispute in Colonial Zimbabwe, 1903–1939"

This study argues that when farmers raised concerns about miners’ activities, ‘precautionary stewardship’ of the environment designed to stop entrepreneurial practices harmful to the environment was not a concern. This was a struggle over the ownership of the means of production by two competing forms of capitalism—a characteristic intra-class as well as intra-racial conflict.
