Work and Research

Tafadzwa is broadly interested in environmental and societal issues, with a particular interest in violent environmentalism. Her work particularly traces the socio-economic and political relationship in resource use and management and critiques violent approaches to environmental management. She has so far contributed to the body of work on the militarisation of conservation and the impact of conservation violence on communities that depend on resources enclosed in protected areas. She is currently leading the extractivism and the environment programme within the broader framework of Environmental Humanities at the Centre for the Advancement of Scholarship. Her new role expands her interest in violent environmentalism to other extractive industries such as mining, fisheries, and water
