No mais recente post do Blogue SHIFT, Verónica Policarpo (ICS-ULisboa) partilha o cerne e a abordagem do projeto de investigação ABIDE – 𝐴𝑛𝑖𝑚𝑎𝑙 𝐴𝐵𝑖𝑑𝑖𝑛𝑔𝑠: 𝑟𝑒𝑐𝑜𝑣𝑒𝑟𝐼𝑛𝑔 𝑓𝑟𝑜𝑚 𝐷𝑖𝑠𝑎𝑠𝑡𝐸𝑟𝑠 𝑖𝑛 𝑚𝑜𝑟𝑒-𝑡ℎ𝑎𝑛-ℎ𝑢𝑚𝑎𝑛 𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑚𝑢𝑛𝑖𝑡𝑖𝑒𝑠 (financiado pela União Europeia – ERC, ABIDE, CoG ID 101043231).
“We start this journey with an overarching question, which hopefully will open new avenues of enquiry. We want to know how animals recover from catastrophic wildfires, in order to include them, their experiences, and perspectives in a new model of multispecies governance of disasters. We are driven by scientific curiosity, empathic engagement, and ethical care. We seek to understand more about how animals reoccupy the territory and the more-than-human maps they contribute to build in that process. We are curious about their relationships with other animals, including humans. “
