Exposed : Environmental Politics and Pleasures in Posthuman Times Paperback
by Stacy Alaimo
Opening with the statement \u201cThe anthropocene is no time to set things straight,\u201d Stacy Alaimo puts forth potent arguments for a material feminist posthumanism in the chapters that follow.From trans-species art and queer animals to naked protesting and scientific accounts of fishy humans, Exposed argues for feminist posthumanism immersed in strange agencies and scale-shifting ethics.
Including such divergent topics as landscape art, ocean ecologies, and plastic activism, Alaimo explores our environmental predicaments to better understand feminist occupations of transcorporeal subjectivity.She puts scientists, activists, artists, writers, and theorists in conversation, revealing that the state of the planet in the twenty-first century has radically transformed ethics, politics, and what it means to be human.
Ultimately, Exposed calls for an environmental stance in which, rather than operating from an externalized perspective, we think, feel, and act as the very stuff of the world.
