Feral Atlas

«The Anthropocene, like every other trajectory in which humans have been involved, is more-than-human.6»

«Humans and nonhumans making each other. To appreciate this situation, and against much precedence, humanists and scientists will have to learn to think together in new ways. Feral Atlas offers one small, brave experiment for such work in common. The Atlas argues that critical description of the Anthropocene, that is, theoretically informed empirical attention to the anthropogenic transformation of land, air, and water, is a central task for our time.7»

«Capital is investment that can be turned into further investment. Capitalism is that system that puts distant investors in charge of local ecologies; capitalists transform ecologies into profit-making resources without having to experience any of the deleterious effects of that transformation.»

«Crowding together, whether of people or other beings, has feral effects. Feral Atlas uses the verb form to indicate that there is something deliberate about the kind of crowding to which the atlas points. CROWD is not a description of self-made grouping. CROWD is a principle of packing things or people together to further political, economic, or scientific programs.»

«Feral effects can be wonderful or terrible. Humans would all be dead without feral effects. If human landscape transformation was as effective as modernist dreamers claim in replacing earlier ecologies, we might have no more forests or fisheries. Forests grow back, fish escape and reproduce: in such instances, we are lucky to live with feral effects. At the same time, feral effects can kill us, both humans and nonhumans.»
