SEAP Gatty Lecture Series “Arrested Autonomy: Posthuman Futures in Sarawak, Malaysia.” Juno Salazar Parreñas, Assistant Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, The Ohio State University. Abstract: The Forestry Corporation, which is the privatized branch of Sarawak’s Forestry Department, has the mandate to protect orangutans, which are Sarawak’s most famous endangered species. The Forestry Corporation cares for displaced orangutans at Sarawak’s two wildlife centers. The goal of these centers is to have displaced orangutans eventually achieve autonomy (kebebasan) within the space of these centers, even as the material constraints of insufficient space and dependency on food support arrests attempts at autonomy. Such indefinitely deferred independence echoes Sarawak’s political history in which official independence was achieved through semi-autonomy in the nation-state of Malaysia. The centers confining semi-wild orangutans run as private-public partnerships; they operate through state grants and private sector initiatives including commercial eco-volunteerism and corporate social responsibility efforts. Forestry Corporation managers intend to make these sites financially independent, yet those working closely with orangutans find this goal implausible. These different attempts at independence and autonomy highlight what futures are at stake when it comes to the care of an endemic species facing the threat of extinction. By futures, I reference the projected futures of individual orangutans and their species and Forestry Corporation managers’ perception of these orangutans as financial assets. This paper argues that ‘autonomy’ in postcolonial and postnatural Sarawak, for both people and orangutans, is about achieving new forms of interdependency. Biography: Juno Salazar Parreñas (PhD in Anthropology, Harvard University, 2012) has held postdoctoral fellowships at Yale University’s Agrarian Studies and the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis. She received the 2013 GAD Exemplary Cross-Field Scholarship Prize for her American Ethnologist article, “Producing Affect.” She is working on her monograph, Interfacing Extinction: An Ethnography of Orangutan Rehabilitation and currently editing the Macmillan Interdisciplinary Handbook on Gender: Animals. Her article ‘The Materiality of Intimacy in Wildlife Rehabilitation” appears in positions: asia critique’s forthcoming January 2016 issue. Lecture
