Rewilding the Anthropocene Body – 19 July 2019

June 13th, 2019

I’ll be presenting a talk at the Limina conference “Humanifesto” at the University of Western Australia, 19 July 2019.

Rewilding the Anthropocene Body

We can see that the Anthropocene human body is very different from the hunter-gatherer human body.  As we have increasingly designed our environments to facilitate physical ease we have created environments which result in chronic pathologies (for example, we now live in a sea of killer-chairs).  How can a rewilding manifesto for urbanised primates get us out of our shoes, chairs and buildings?  What treasury of cultural exhortations can we turn to to fuel this revolution?
