What might a queer feminist engagement with Latour’s proposals look like? It’s that hectic time of year for academics when papers and exams pile up and the end-of-year holidays loom large. In the midst of it all, I’ve been dividing my attention between the knowledge projects that interest me most: queer feminist theory, religious studies, and feminist science studies - particularly those engaged with the climate change and the politics of our new global epoch which some have christened the Anthropocene.
