Environmental Cosmopolitanism in a South Indian Village

Who is a cosmopolitan person? Can we imagine cosmopolitan citizenship devoid of high consumerism? Is global environmental citizenship only associated with elite urbanites? I explore these and many other questions in my article “Environmental Cosmopolitanism in a South Indian Village” published in the latest online issue of the Critique of Anthropology. The article privileges cosmopolitanism of the poor and the environmental citizenship of some rural Indians. This article is part of a special journal issue on ‘The Global Village’ that focuses on rural sites to understand the phenomena of globalization and neoliberalization.
