In her book „Exposed“, Stacy Alaimo calls to approach environmentalism from the inside out challenging boundaries between human bodies and their environments. Building upon her concept of transcorporeality, she shows how human beings are always already more than human and how different bodies are entangled in manifold ways. Stacy Alaimo, Professor of English at the University of Texas in Arlington, brings scientists, activists, artists and feminist theories in conversation to develop a new posthuman environmental politics. In this session, we discuss how feminist materialisms in general and Alaimo’s work in particular can fertilise geographic research at the same time that her thought can be further inspired by discussions taking place in feminist geography.
