Vital seeds: an assemblage approach to seed production and ownership
This paper is a think piece which attempts to examine the complexities of holistic research in a brief space. I outline a theoretical positioning for environmental study based in assemblage thinking, a sometimes contentious (Hornborg 2017), but useful approach. I then demonstrate the kind of inquiry by utilizing this assemblage approach in order to explore and critique discursive-legal issues in US patent and PVPA certification legislation. The end-goal of the project is to begin exploring how assemblage thinking within environmental justice scholarship could imagine a more just ecologic future.
