Subjectivity, Biology and Politics
Professor Peg Rawes
This lecture will explore philosophical and environmental practices in which ecological relationships re-think conceptual and biological agency. It draws from the ecological, materialist and political writing practices of Rachel Carson, Donna Haraway and Jane Bennett as 'agental matters' through which human and nonhuman relations are made critical and creative. It will consider how debates about biology and politics which come after Michel Foucault's 'biopolitics' are foregrounded in today’s issues of planetary and social justice, ethics and aesthetic practices.
