Moremi Zeil, MA

Landhaus Manager


Moremi Zeil is a doctoral student and acts as Landhaus Manager within the Landhaus Fellowship program. In his dissertation project "Enacting the River Subject: Legal Personality of the Río Atrato in Colombia", he explores the challenge posed by the decision to recognize a river as subject of rights. Building on ethnographic field work and document analysis, the project questions human-nature (intra-)relations, conceptions mobilized to account for them, and the institutional arrangements created for their accommodation. Moremi studied Geography in Bayreuth and Bonn before working as a teaching assistant at the University of Klagenfurt.
