Abstract [en]

In the new planetary age of the Anthropocene or the Age of Man (as it were),humanity is cast as a single geological force, a major force of environmentaldestruction, and one folding in on itself. The Anthropocene is famously definedby human-induced climatic, biological, and geological transformations of ourplanet, by a profound anthropogenic environmental impact and mass speciesextinctions. However, the Anthropocene risk also, as pointed out by a widerange of feminist philosophers and critical scholars, hides troublesome differencesbetween humans, and also hides intimate relationships between technology,humans, and other animals. This totalization of humanity is a parallel risk insome posthuman theorizing also, and something postdisciplinary scholars ofthe critical humanities and feminist philosophers have paid attention to fordecades. In the posthuman context of the Anthropocene, I suggest and pointto postdisciplinary humanities research and theory–practices that pay carefulattention to the feminist theoretical work on our equally postnatural conditionas an experimental remedy.
