In recent years, scholars from the fields of science studies, feminist theory, anthropology, and environmental humanities have challenged the ontological divide between nature and culture, human and nonhuman. This divide, they argue, grounds a dangerous faith in human exceptionalism, the root of both progress (for a few) and catastrophe (for the rest). In this seminar, we will examine theories of "natureculture," a conceptual innovation that is emerging in place of the human. Introduced by feminist scholar Donna Haraway to describe entangled multispecies histories, the term illuminates new ways of thinking about agency and power, difference and sociality, ontology and epistemology. The term has no single definition. Rather, it has come to represent a vibrant and unruly spectrum of transdisciplinary approaches that are unified by a common and deceptively simple argument: attending to worlds that are more than human requires changing the methods and apparatuses of study. In other words, to dissolve the boundary between nature and culture is to radically remix the arts, humanities, and the social and natural sciences. The seminar will look at works that exemplify this argument. We will unpack each by placing the work in conversation with broader questions: What is gained and lost when we dislodge the modernist figure of the human as the apex of evolution and master of the planet? Can we identify and follow specific naturecultures in everyday life in New York City, as theorized in the readings? And if so, how might we model, map, perform, or story such specificities—without resorting to humancentered perspectives and conventions in one of the most complex islands of the world.
