Summary
New materialisms argue for a more science-friendly humanities, ventilating questions about methodology and subject matter and the importance of the non-human. However, these new sites of attention - climate, biology, affect, geology, animals and objects - tend to leverage their difference against language and the discursive. Similarly, questions about ontology have come to eclipse, and even eschew, those of epistemology.<br><br>While this collection of essays is in kinship with this radical shake-up of how and what we study, the aim is to re-navigate what constitutes materiality. These efforts are encapsulated by a rewriting of the Derridean axiom, {u2018}there is no outside text{u2019} as {u2018}there is no outside nature.{u2019} What if nature has always been literate, numerate, social? And what happens to {u2018}the human{u2019} if its exceptional identity and status is conceded quantum, non-local and ecological implication?
