Biography

Archana Ramanujam works on understanding how we might organize our political economy differently, in right relation with our environment to avoid climate catastrophe. Currently, she is focused on how multinational corporations in sectors like the fossil fuel industry facilitate global power dynamics under climate change that we would typically associate with empire or colonial capitalism. Archana is also very interested in understanding how to break these dynamics down, towards a just and equitable future for humans and nonhuman life.
