Power and politics: book chapters

KONOPÁSEK, Z. & ŘÍHA, C. (2024): Letáčky [Leaflets]. In: E. Fulínová & A. Kvíčalová, ed: Antropocennosti: Malý průvodce světem antropocénu [Matters of Anthropocene: A small guide to the world of Anthropocene]. Praha: Academia. Pp. 73-83

The leaflets of the PLA are not an Anthropocene icon, but they tell us about this phenomenon. They show that we are not only living in a time of destruction of nature, landscapes and cultural monuments, but also of unprecedented protection measures. It is not just a matter of action and reaction. It is not just the number of protected specimens and sites that is expanding, but also the types of things that are being protected. At the same time, the question of what we are actually protecting and from whom is becoming more urgent. The Anthropocene is not only the physical state of the contemporary world, but also the way we talk about it. Its characteristics include both the fact that we increasingly think of it in general terms, in terms of protection and regulation, and what specifically is the focus of this protection.
