'Candid Little Hunters': Narrative Futures for the 'End-Game'

14th February 2019, 16:00 to 18:00, ER146, Elvet Riverside 1, Emily Spiers (Lancaster; invited by the Centre for Cultural Ecologies)

Centre for Cultural Ecologies / Centre for Sex, Gender and Sexualities / School of Modern Languages and Cultures present:

‘Candid Little Hunters’: Narrative Futures for the ‘End-Game’. Emily Spiers (Lancaster).

Thursday 14 February, ER146 Elvet Riverside, 4-6 pm

Emily Spiers’ talk will examine recent examples of narrative fiction by women that explore the role of agency in the ‘seamless web of material, spatial and temporal interdependencies that encompasses not just human beings but communities of animals, plants and inorganic matter’ (Adam and Groves, 2007). What new perspectives on the future emerge from encounters with wolves, hawks, and foxes, and from confrontations with death and new life?

Emily Spiers is a Lecturer in Creative Futures at Lancaster University and the author of Pop-Feminist Narratives: The Female Subject Under Neoliberalism (Oxford 2018). Everyone is welcome to attend and booking is not required. If you would like copies of the readings discussed in the talk in advance, please email cce.admin@durham.ac.uk.
