Abstract [en]

Cecilia Åsberg’s documentation of the coastal “wrack zone” in Scandinavia pays close attention to histories of militarization near Gotland and the convergence of leftover munitions alongside seaweeds that have been washed ashore, also on the Swedish westcoast. Åsberg describes a picturesque coastal background where “bony white and gray rock meet brown algae and the hope of finding amber” against decades of industrial, often military, waste, ranging from World War leftovers of munitions and mustard gas to agricultural fertilizers. Swayed by the seaweeds themselves through modes of writing that reflect drifts in attention at field sites along Scandinavian coastlines, or finding solidarity with seaweeds against extractive or colonial regimes, this piece aims to story sea-side exposures beyond damage narratives.

Abstract [en]

This cross-disciplinary exploration delves into the multifaceted intersec-tions of technology, embodiment, identity, and ecology through the lens of cyborg knowing. The first contribution focuses on the vulnerabilities faced by individuals with implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs), emphasizing the crucial need for acclimatization strategies and agency in navigating their cybernetic embodiment as “everyday cyborg”. The second contribu-tion critically examines cultural technologies revealing their role in perpet-uating biases and advocates for interdisciplinary approaches, drawing on feminist STS and cyborg theory, to adaptively reshape societal constructs. Lastly, the third contribution envisions a comprehensive theory of cyber-zoa that extends the cyborg figuration to encompass nonhuman animals, fostering a post-anthropocentric perspective and an ecologically attuned examination of power relations, exploitation, and symmetrical relation-ships. By engaging with the concept of the cyborg, these contributions shed light on the complex dynamics and transformative potentials inher-ent in the realm of technology for both human and nonhuman lives

Abstract [en]

In the concluding chapter (chapter 17 of EUP's book The Edinburgh Companion to the New Humanities, written by Cecilia Åsberg and Rosi Braidotti, the emergence and need for versatile forms of feminist posthumanities is mapped out. Åsberg and Braidotti, building on their respective previous works on feminist posthumanities and the posthuman in feminist philosophy, describe and introduce a multi-valent new field of research fields within and beyond the new humanities.

Abstract [sv]

Prata med plantor – går det? 6 juli 2023Artikel från forskning.seÄmne: Miljö & klimat, Natur & teknik - ABIGAIL SYKES

I naturen pågår ständiga samtal – som människor inte lärt sig uppfatta. Men det går att kommunicera med växter och vi gör det också hela tiden, säger forskare. De senaste åren har forskning visat att tomatplantor ”skriker” när de klipps av, att växter lär sig att en del beröring inte är farlig samt att de varnar varandra för hot. Är växter smartare än vi trodde, och vad betyder det i så fall för hur vi behandlar dem?

Växter, träd och andra organismer kommunicerar med varandra genom ljud, ljus, beröring samt framför allt kemiska signaler som dofter både ovan och under jord. Genom sammankopplade nätverk av rötter och svamptrådar sänder exempelvis starkare träd näring till svagare träd .

Nyligen kom en studie från universitetet i Tel Aviv som visade att tomat- och tobaksplantor avger högfrekventa ljud när de utsätts för torka eller klipps av – ljud som forskarna först spelade in med ultraljudsmikrofoner och sedan upp i ett långsammare tempo så att människor kunde höra dem som ett klickande.

Abstract [en]

The Posthumanities Hub round-table workshop On "Creative with concepts"

Speakers: Prof. Nanna Verhoeff (Utrecht University), Prof. Iris van der Tuin (Utrecht University), Dr Janna Holmstedt (Sweden’s Historical Museums), Prof. Christina Fredengren (Uppsala University), Prof. Paola Ruiz Moltó (Universitat Jaume) & Prof. Cecilia Åsberg (LiU) with friends.

11th May, 2023 on-location workshop at Linköping University

Engaging with what concepts can do, we explore in this experimental round-table workshop what happens in the arts and creative humanities when "theory words" (concepts) work across different research practices. We move through a set of concepts, like, "assembling", "cartography", "curation", "dirt", "following", "micrology", "unlearning" and "wonder" (all from Iris van der Tuin & Nanna Verhoeff's (2022) Critical Concepts for the Creative Humanities, see below how to download it!). Such concepts are put to work differently across the invited speakers' various research projects. Come meet artistic research on soil and sustainability; museum ecologies and heritage research on past and future waste sites of the present Antropocene; imaginative teacher education with art, science and tiny, tiny critters, as well as other forms of blue/ environmental/ feminist/ more-than-human and creative humanities.

Abstract [en]

Violent but slow changes to marine climates and blue biodiversity, to warming oceans and coastal areas have been understood as nested problems in need of increased scientific and technological solutions. Instead, this chapter begins from the position that these interlinked problems of human environmental impact on oceans and coastal areas require connected, affective and cultural studies-informed approaches of more-than-human arts (posthumanities put to practice) to complement scientific insight on how to consume better with the sea. Human-induced impacts range from ocean warming and acidification, loss of biodiversity, eutrophication and marine pollution to local degradation of coastal environments and habitats. In order to deal with the nested challenges of such oceanic environmental violence in terms of consumption and grief, we propose to show four cases of coastal and marine slow violence from our Scandinavian “backyards” with the purpose to story exposures and provide counter-narratives on how to reinvent our consumerist ocean imaginary. From diverse locations in the field and in research, we have developed what is here referred to as “low trophic theory”, a situated local stance that attends to entanglements of cultural theory, food practice, affect and grief, violence, more-than-human humanities, multispecies ethics, and the oceanic consumer imaginary. We combine field-philosophical case studies with insights from marine science, eco-art and cultural practices in the Baltic and North Sea region. In the process, we develop analytical notions for the practices and theories of feminist posthumanities. Here in particular as targeted arts of learning to live and die, consume less violently, and to grieve on a damaged blue planet.

Abstract [sv]

Vår tids stora fråga rör handling, vad en kan göra när nästan all form av handling framstår som besudlad eller oren? Vilka är möjligheterna  för tanke och handling i en anda av samexistens i splittrad värld? Inom litteraturvetenskaperna har ekokritiken definierat ett brett område som snabbt etablerat en uppsjö teoretiska positioner. Ekokritiska metoder har också påverkat näraliggande forskningsämnen och varit viktiga för etableringen av nyhumanioran som erbjuds inom ramen för miljöorienterad humaniora, environmental humanities. Miljö- och hållbarhetsfrågor som samhället brottas med idag gör ekokritisk kreativitet än mer aktuell. I mitt efterord till boken Ekokritiska metoder emfaserar jag ekokritikens roll och relation inom miljöhumaniora och samtidsdebatt. Jag pekar mot en kreativ-skapande-görande approach till berättande som gör ekokritik till en mer än mänsklig angelägenhet i en värld som snabbt förändras och som behöver lika snabbt föränderliga analysansatser. Mer än mänsklig humaniora (posthumaniora), ekokritik, ekofeminismer och miljöhumaniora omarbetar frentetiskt - och i samarbeten - idag vår självsyn och kulturella berättelser för att bättre fungera med en splittrad och skadad värld. Den går från ord till handling.
