PAHMI is one of the conferences that I try to attend every year if possible. The subject matter is a close fit with my research interests and the conference is an excellent opportunity to hear and reflect on scholarly views from ‘across the pond’. This year, the conference was held at the Faculty of Humanities, Universitas Indonesia.
I presented a paper entitled “Palm Oil Intensification and Expansion in Indonesia and Malaysia: Environmental and Socio-Political Considerations”. The paper will be expanded into a full-length article for publication, as one of the outputs for the British Academy Project on Evidence-Based Forestry in Indonesia. The Prezi for the presentation can be found here.
