Full Project Name
: Toxic Media Ecologies: Critical Responses to the Cultural Politics of Planetary Crisis
Taking an intermedia-ecological approach, this research project refuses the modern colonial opposition between nature and culture, indeed the false sense of security offered by any binary opposition, by drawing on the old and new powers of poetry, research-creation, social and cultural theory and histories from below in order to construct new critical tools with which to respond to the cultural politics of crises. The project looks at urgent contemporary issues and topics such as whiteness as desire, rape culture, spectacular fashion, anthropocene discourse, high financial intermediation, suburban imaginaries, surveillance and sousveillance, Islamophobia, energy transition and climate change while searching for a new theoretical idiom of interrogation.
