An event I’m organising in the Autumn with the Edinburgh Environmental Humanities Network…
11:00-17:00 Friday 28 November 2014
Not only has the Earth become sensitive to the activities of humans, or least certain strata of humanity, but increasingly, ways of life—human and more-than-human alike—under late capitalism have become increasingly sensitive to Earth forces.
How do we sense the Anthropocene Earth? What does it mean that the Earth feels us? What might a politics that feels the Earth look like? The symposium will examine such questions—and others—through three elements that tie life together: air, rock, and flesh.
