It’s After the End of the World, Don’t You Know That Yet?: Writing in the Shadow of Human Extinction

This evening, consisting of readings, screenings and discussion will focus on the question of writing in the late anthropocene. With the question of major shifts in global climate, foodways and migration patterns, and the potential for major political and economic upheaval, this event will pose questions about writing’s contemporary role and the ways it is being reshaped by the presence of these world-altering forces. The evening will feature writers and artists Pedro Neves Marques and Mariana Silva, poets Evelyn Reilly and Adjua Greaves, and filmmakers Adam and Zack Khalil and their focuses ranging from ecocide and genetically modified organisms to indigenous counternarratives of “the end” and the survivability and “mattering,” in philosopher Judith Butler’s terms, of writing.
