Summary
Living on a damaged planet challenges who we are and where we live. This timely anthology puts forward a bold proposal: entangled histories, situated narratives, and thick descriptions offer urgent "arts of living." These essays posit critical and creative tools for survival in a more-than-human Anthropocene. The essays are organized around two key themes that also serve as the publication's two openings: Ghosts, or landscaped haunted by the violences of modernity; and Monsters, or interspecies and intraspecies sociality
Summary
Contributors from the humanities and social sciences tell stories about the environment and human activity during the Anthropocene geologic epoch. The section on ghosts discusses in the midst of damage, footprints of the dead, and what remains; the section on monsters covers inhabiting multi-species bodies, beyond individuals, and at the edge of extinction. Among the topics are Marie Curie's fingerprint: nuclear spelunking in the Chernobyl zone, future megafauna: a historical perspective on the potential for a wilder Anthropocene, establishing new worlds: the lichens of Petersham, noticing microbial worlds: the postmodern synthesis in biology, holobiont by birth: multi-lineage individuals as the concretion of cooperative processes, and synchronies at risk: the intertwined lives of horseshoe crabs and red knot birds.
