Postcards from the Anthropocene.
Unsettling the Geopolitics of Representation

Benek Cincik, Tiago Torres-Campos (eds.)

Drawing on the wide-ranging contributions to the recent international symposium Postcards from the Anthropocene: Unsettling the Geopolitics of Representation and the parallel exhibition ‘The Other Side’, this edited book will curate and present submissions from important scholars and practitioners across multiple disciplines in the arts and humanities.

This book builds up a visual archive complemented with theoretical explorations, which distinguishes it from other solely theory-oriented publications emerging from social sciences and humanities. Equally, through the motif of the postcard, it differentiates itself from other visual-oriented publications with a focus on the newly emerging field of the aesthetics of the Anthropocene. In their exploration of the possibilities of the postcard idea, contributions in the book will explore diverse temporalities and the complex relation between the present and the futures it constructs, both imagined and unimaginable.

The trans-disciplinary nature of the book make it a key publication in the emergent field of geohumanities. Its publication marks an important event for all areas of research concerned with the Anthropocene debate —Anthropocene studies, environmental humanities, political ecology, nuclear humanities, and climate change studies.
