The effects of harmful environmental changes caused by humans have increasingly taken their tools on human and non-human habitats alike in all parts of the world. With its focus on Southeast Asia and Thailand in particular, our interdisciplinary panel explores how recent environmental crisis, environmental transformation and politico-social environment at once form and transform various communities. Through its collection of papers, the panel investigates an “ad-hoc community” linking through hazy air pollution crisis in Southeast Asia, fish as companion species with reference to environment and health in Thailand and the centrality of food and travelling as a critique of Thailand’s socio-economic disparity in a Thai novel.
