C21's broad range of publications confirms its leadership in the academic community in the United States and abroad. The books in our current series with the University of Minnesota Press, and in our earlier series, 21st Century Studies and Theories of Contemporary Culture, with Indiana University Press originate from conferences sponsored by C21 or are authored by scholars affiliated with the Center.
New in 2017 is our second volume in the Center for 21st Century Studies series with the University of Minnesota Press: Anthropocene Feminism.
Edited by former C21 director Richard Grusin, the volume originates from our 2014 conference of the same name.
What does feminism have to say to the Anthropocene? How does the concept of the Anthropocene impact feminism? This book is a daring and provocative response to the masculinist and techno-normative approach to the Anthropocene so often taken by technoscientists, artists, humanists, and social scientists. By coining and, for the first time, fully exploring the concept of “anthropocene feminism,” it highlights the alternatives feminism and queer theory can offer for thinking about the Anthropocene.
In addition to an Introduction by Richard Grusin, the volume includes essays by Stacy Alaimo, Rosi Braidotti, Joshua Clover and Juliana Spahr, Claire Colebrook, Dehlia Hannah and Natalie Jeremijenko, Myra J. Hird and Alexander Zahara, Lynne Huffer, Elizabeth A. Povinelli, and Jill S. Schneiderman.
The Nonhuman Turn, edited by former C21 director Richard Grusin, this volume originates from our 2014 conference of the same name.
