“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Hyperobjects 3.0: Nonlocality Remix

I do believe it's time for me to tackle my research on nonlocality in my next hyperobjects talk. This poses a problem of how to relate it to thinking about ecology. Nonlocal effects are now apparent in DNA and photosynthesis, so that's a beginning. Does anyone out there have any ideas? Don't say Karen Barad—I've already been there.

This is also apropos of my essay for a volume on ecofeminism, called “Treating Objects Like Women.” I'm going to use Levi Bryant's startling formulation on objects and sexuation.

I'm intrigued and look forward to reading more. I'm usually a Lacan skeptic, but LB's post has me thawing a little. I'm revising a chapter on Paterson and think this avenue of inquiry might help me reframe it. Huh.
