becoming-Feral is a creative research publication which aims to investigate the complex relationships between human/other-animals and the shifting categories of wild/feral/domestic, set within landscapes constantly being altered by global transformations of climate and capitalism. We are interested in exploring reciprocal and responsive multispecies reactions to the act of becoming-Feral.
becoming-Feral will curate a prismatic and multifaceted perspective on our understandings of other-animals and their ‘wildness’ through the form of a bestiarum vocabulum (book of beasts). We invite creative contributions from anyone: zoologists; scholars; researchers; historians; scientists; poets; naturalists; artists; activists.
This book is being co-edited by our STS colleague, Alexandra Lakind and will also be created as part of a broader “Feral Worlds” research group that is starting during the spring semester. The group is based out of the Center for Culture, History, and Environment, featuring UW-Madison graduate students, Addie Hopes, Sabrina Manero, Emery Jenson, and Laura Grotjan.
They are seeking static and multimedia contributions for both a print- and digital- edition.
