Our work on human-non-human entanglements explores how in the contemporary moment notions of human exceptionalism, as well as the natural, are being challenged and reinforced. This work includes research on naturecultures, the animal, the anthropocene, digital and intelligent machines, money, and biocultural creations, such as animal models, diseases, resistant microbes and waste.
We ask: To what extent can we or do we want to live in a post-natural world? How can focussing on the more-than-human bring alternative futures and social worlds into being?
