Feeling the Anthropocene: Air, Rock, Flesh – Edinburgh, 28 Nov 2014

Feeling the Anthropocene: Air, Rock, Flesh

Symposium: University of Edinburgh

11:00-17:00 Friday 28 November 2014

Not only has the Earth become sensitive to the activities of humans, or rather 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? What might a politics that feels the Earth look like? What does it mean that the Earth feels us? The symposium will examine such questions—and others—through three elements that tie life together: air, rock, and flesh.
