My line of research comes from the tensions and frictions between the notions of oikos and polis… The space of the habitable inside and the politicized outside. On the one hand, this binarism makes it possible to critically analyze major concepts that make up the administrative urgencies of the human territory (ecology, ecosystems and economy). Nonetheless, the dichotomous vision of a depoliticized "eco" frustrates the open speculation of new approaches for cohabitation within "Nature." It is, then, necessary and urgent to think alternatively about the construction of the world outside of the anthropocentric and pseudo-objective colonial perception.
