FellowSpeak: "Terminal Regions: Queer Environmental Ethics in the Absence of Futurity"

Sarah Ensor, Steelcase Faculty Fellow, assistant professor, environment and English language and literature

The Babushkas of Chernobyl The Babushkas of Chernobyl
The Babushkas of Chernobyl
This talk asks what contemporary environmentalism’s (seemingly necessary) emphasis on the future has rendered unthinkable. By reading queer texts whose animating conditions require their protagonists to bracket questions of futurity as normatively lived, I trace paradigms of relationality, practices of care, political affects, temporal modes, and forms of solidarity that as yet have not found their way into ecocritical conversations and practices of environmental stewardship.
