“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

Qui Parle 19.2: Mega Eco Issue, feat. Barad, Morton, Buell, Lemenager

Downloadable HERE at long last, and what a beautiful cover (shades of Wayne Thiebaud). Featuring:

The first essay I ever wrote on OOO featuring ecology, quantum theory and relativity (and a little bit of Derrida for luck);

An essay by Karen Barad on queer performativity featuring lightning, atoms and stingray neuronal receptors;

Stephanie Lemanager on Petro-Melancholia (nice term);

Directions in ecocriticism by Lawrence Buell.

Essays, poems, paintings and more by Alenda Chang, Katrina Dodson, Alastair Hunt, Jonathan Skinner, Sunaura Taylor, David Maisel, Craig Dworkin,Brenda Hillman, Harryette Mullen, Simona Schneider, and Joan Retallack.

well I would download it if my library would let me. Brooklyn College resources are often minimal.
