Abstract

This paper examines the links between deforestation and famine in the context of the late-19th-century food crisis in Chotanagpur. It attempts to understand the phenomenon famine as a gendered one, and explores the cultural and gendered meanings of hunger. In doing so it looks at the symbolism of the landscape and the gendering of it by local communities in Chotanagpur.
