Feral Atlas: Toward a Collaborative Environmental Humanities
Department of English, Anna Tsing, University of California, Santa Cruz
Mon, 3/27 · 12:00 pm—1:30 pm · Hinds Library, McCosh
Join us for a lunchtime conversation on Feral Atlas: The More-than Human Anthropocene, participatory projects, and the Environmental Humanities.
Feral Atlas invites you to explore the ecological worlds created when nonhuman entities become tangled up with human infrastructure projects. Seventy-nine field reports from scientists, humanists, and artists show you how to recognize “feral” ecologies, that is, ecologies that have been encouraged by human-built infrastructures, but which have developed and spread beyond human control. These infrastructural effects, Feral Atlas argues, are the Anthropocene.
