Anne Rademacher (M.E.S., Ph.D., Yale University) is Associate Professor of Environmental Studies and Anthropology at New York University. Her research explores the political and cultural dimensions of sustainability in cities. Through ethnographic analyses of urban environmental change, Anne studies the contested histories and ideologies of belonging that develop in struggles over the form, content, and quality of urban environments. Her lens is urban ecology – its scientific contours, its application across cultural and political contexts, and its interconnection with social change. Her books include Building Green: Environmental Architects and the Struggle for Sustainability in Mumbai (University of California Press 2017), Places of Nature in Ecologies of Urbanism (Hong Kong University and Columbia University Press 2017), Reigning the River: Urban Ecologies and Political Transformation in Kathmandu (Duke University Press 2011), and Ecologies of Urbanism in India: Metropolitan Civility and Sustainability (Hong Kong University and Columbia University Press 2013).
