Abstract

In an emerging body of work in post-development geography there is an increasing emphasis on paying attention to communities, perspectives, and ways of being that are not normally seen or adequately acknowledged. This body of work seeks to provide accounts of lived realities and possibilities that are absent from, and made invisible through, dominant paradigms of global economic and political systems. Alternative economies and alternative ways of being often go unseen in discourses that focus only on the hegemony of global capitalism or the modern state. By focusing on such alternatives new post-development studies seek to make visible, and thus strengthen, what are often small scale, local examples of diversity in economic and political practices.
