Special Issue on the Anthropocene from ‘the minnesota review’

The new issue of the minnesota review, edited by Tobias Boes and Kate Marshall from Notre Dame,  addresses the notion of the Anthropocene: a name for the present geological epoch in which human beings have become a geophysical force.  With submissions from scholars of literature and art, the issue focuses on how we write about the Anthropocene, how we write geological agency, how we write on the earth, how we interpret geological marks, and how the concept of writing itself changes with knowledge of this new geological situation. The issue contains submissions from Jesse Oak Taylor, James Pulizzi, Tobias Menely, Margaret Rhonda, Gabriele Dürbeck, Nicole M. Merola, Noah Heringman, Calina Ciobanu, Joshua Schuster, and CENHS’s Derek Woods.
