Book cover of publication by Anne-Caroline Prévot
Anne-Caroline Prévot is ecologist and conservation biologist, but she works in social sciences as well (mostly conservation psychology) to understand the relations that people have – or not- with the rest of the living in their ordinary lives, I.e. the “experiences of nature”. She explores also the importance of nature in popular artistic creations (animated films, books, films), in order to understand how nature could enter novel social imaginaries.
