TUNNELING IN THE CHTHULUCENE
Anna Tsing and Donna Haraway ASLE conference, University of Idaho
2015, 1 hour, 32 min, 14 sec
In this experimental collaborative lecture, Anna Tsing and Donna Haraway expand on the subject of the Chthulucene—a proposal for an age to come, in which humans make messy, lively, multispecies communities in the wake of anthropogenic climate change and ruin. Tsing’s book The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins and Haraway’s book Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene both explore alternative prospects for living within and through the disasters wrought by capitalism.
