The Anthropocene has taken hold as a concept in contemporary discourse, a concept which posits the Anthropos, the human and its technology, as the primary accelerating force in ecological change and crisis.

While the term intends to codify the vast extent to which humans destroying the planet, many believe it sublimates fundamental points: our technical categorizations are always political first; and We, whatever we are, are not at their center. Some others try to speak of something else not-yet-finished, the abyssal, generative and destructive Chthulucene. Drawing from microbiology, cultural productions of “global scale,” and staying with that which sits beside, inside, above or below us, this Deep Listening Lecture will introduce work by those thinking within the Chthulucene concept and move toward ways to think less human terrain.
