Achille Mbembe (2003) used the term ‘necropolitics’ to account for the existence of ‘death worlds’ within postcolonial geopolitical spaces.

Gendering PostNature

Genders Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2017

This special issue of Genders invites essays, reviews, roundtables, and creative work that address the emergent category of “postnature” in the new geological epoch of the Anthropocene. We seek interventions across local and global frameworks that consider the ways postnature is informed by gender identities, norms, discourses, and practices, as well as their socio-political, scientific, popular, and aesthetic regulation. As a disciplinary norm deployed to police the “unnatural,” nature has proved to be a labile signifier used to endorse or discredit a wide spectrum of cultural formations.
