A Co-Created Space

Islandness and Beekeeping in Sardinia

Seminarraum 1, Institut für Europäische Ethnologie
Hanuschgasse 3, 1010 Wien


The Italian island of Sardinia is often associated with a mythological representation that defines it as the ‘endless island’ of the Mediterranean Sea. In this regard, the plans for biodiversity safeguard appear connected to discourses about the ‘Sardinaness’ of people, animals, and plants. The presentation explores how beekeepers, through the practice of beekeeping, build an intimate relation with the different species that interact with bees, and how this relationship enables Sardinian beekeepers to re-think ‘Sardinia’ and its environment as a space produced by the co-actions of human and non-human beings.
