Eben Kirksey is a cultural anthropologist and science studies scholar at the CUNY Graduate Center who studies the political dimensions of imagination as well as the interplay of natural and cultural history. As a guest co-editor of Cultural Anthropology, Kirksey has assembled a collection of original research articles from the emerging field of multispecies ethnography. His first book, Freedom in Entangled Worlds, is about an indigenous political movement in West Papua, the half of New Guinea under Indonesian control.
In this talk, Eben explores the Ant, and the possibilities of empathizing with a species that is commonly thought of as inferior to the human.
