Future Pasts is a cross-disciplinary Arts and Humanities research project exploring understandings and practices of sustainability in west Namibia, where three of our UK-based academics have long-term field experience. We work with a number of Namibian organisations, including the National Museum, Gobabeb Research and Training, and Save the Rhino Trust, to develop and conduct research that is empirically-rich, locally relevant, theoretically interesting and creative. Future Pasts is funded primarily through the UK's Arts and Humanities Research Council's Care for the Future theme (ref. AH/K005871/2).
