The article provides a commentary on Nancy Peluso's article: ‘The Remittance Forest: Turning Mobile Labour into Agrarian Capital ’. It offers a 'mobile and materialfeminist political ecology' to further extend Peluso's work, destabilizing a state-centred conceptualization of the political forest, and developing a material feminist intersectional reading of nature, mobility and labour in the volcanic landscapes of Java, Indonesia.
