This is a shorter version of an article with the same title that was published previously in the sister journal Conservation and Society. It discusses forced human displacement from protected areas (game reserves and national parks) in Africa and India. The author argues for a more nuanced, interdisciplinary approach to the subject, which should also examine constructions of social memory.
