(p.245) Conclusion
Stanford University Press

The concluding chapter reviews the various implications for a postcolonial democracy of a diachronic articulation of space and rights. The first half of the chapter centers on a short account of the shocking effect of the Asian tsunami during 2004 on the Kanyakumari coast. It looks at the shifts and continuities that ensued, which centered around the relations between church, fishers, and state. The discussion then turns to a Gramscian understanding of subalternity; this understanding tries to emphasize its dialectical nature and importance in scholarly work—especially in conservation—and in a participatory approach to rights.
