Bram is Professor and Chair of the Sociology of Development and Change group at Wageningen University in The Netherlands and Visiting Professor at the University of Johannesburg in South Africa. His overall intellectual project seeks to bring human-nonhuman relations and biodiversity conservation deeper into our understanding of the trajectories of global capitalism while imagining and organising post-growth convivial ways forward.
Bram’s work has been published and discussed in many peer-reviewed journals, popular media and documentaries. His books include Transforming the Frontier. Peace Parks and the Politics of Neoliberal Conservation in Southern Africa (Duke University Press, 2013) and The Truth About Nature. Environmentalism in the Era of Post-Truth Politics and Platform Capitalism (University of California Press, 2021). Together with Robert Fletcher, he authored The Conservation Revolution: Radical Ideas for Saving Nature Beyond The Anthropocene. This highly acclaimed book was published in 2020 by Verso and has been translated into Spanish, German and French.
Bram relishes thinking through how to understand and transform our maddening global situation with colleagues, partners and friends from around the world and is proud to, amongst others, do so as one of the senior editors of the open-access, non-corporate owned journal Conservation & Society (www.conservationandsociety.org.in). In his free time you can spot him on a race bike around the beautiful Veluwe area in the Netherlands.
