Ben Bowsher: “Re-imagining Posthuman Geographies: Political Struggles in Ecological Crises”

In Students by General Account

My research examines posthuman geography, a field that attempts to account for the relationship between human and nonhuman agencies in the production of space. Frequently, the field faces concerns over a lack of political efficacy and depoliticisation. In the increasingly urgent context of proliferating ecological crises, my research responds to these critiques by generating a new theoretical approach to posthuman geography that recognises the nonhuman as both the central stake and an active agent in processes of political litigation. The project will examine political posthuman geographies in a range of empirical contexts.
