Mapping life, death and ferality in the Anthropocene.


In 100 years, we've lost more species than in millions in years of past epochs. The amount of dirt being moved by anthropogenic processes is so much greater now than even what was moved by the glaciers. We have created a kind of speed up of earth changing processes, and we have no idea what will be able to survive it.

Anthropologist Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing explores the shifting web of life and death on a globe dominated by the actions of humans, and explains how the spiraling destruction of the natural world gives lie to the narratives of conquest and control at the heart of the capitalist world system.

Anna is an editor of the web project Feral Atlas for Stanford University Press.
