Anne Rademacher is an urban ecologist and ethnographer. Trained in environmental studies and anthropology at Yale University, she is currently associate professor of environmental studies and anthropology at New York University. Through ethnographic analyses of urban environmental change, Anne studies 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 ideas of history and ideologies of belonging. Anne’s early research focused on the cultural politics of river restoration in Nepal’s capital city, published as Reigning the River: Urban Ecologies and Political Transformation in Kathmandu (Duke University Press 2011). Together with K. Sivaramakrishnan, she coordinates the Ecologies of Urbanism network, a group of scholars who address urban ecology questions across Asia. This work has produced two volumes: Ecologies of Urbanism in India: Metropolitan Civility and Sustainability (Hong Kong University/Columbia UP 2013), and Places of Nature in Ecologies of Urbanism (Hong Kong University/Columbia UP 2017). Anne’s most recent book, Building Green: Environmental Architects and the Struggle for Sustainability in Mumbai(University of California Press 2017), focuses on the social and material practices of urban ecology through the lens of environmental architecture.
