Seminar 18: A Feminist Project of Belonging for the Anthropocene

An open seminar with Katherine Gibson

10.30-12.00 15th February 2012
room 16.03,  Arts Tower, University of Sheffield

We are pleased to be discussing J.K Gibson-Graham’s paper,  ‘A FeministProject of Belonging for the Anthropocene.’

Following their critiques of ‘capitalocentrism’ and their search for plural, place-based economic alternatives,  Katherine Gibson and Julie Graham turn their attention to the ‘more-than-human’ in regional development.  They ask, “can we imagine regional social economies, connected to ecologies, to country, to place? Can we begin to see regional development as creating ethical connections between species and all sorts of life forms?”
