Abstract

In this essay, we explore the affordances of senses for Anthropocene research and teaching. Climate calamity, to the extent that it can be called an ‘object’, consistently disrupts our habits of thought as it exceeds disciplines, genres, and cognitive styles. In this context, both teaching and researching run up against specific cognitivist habits of thought. In order to craft an alternative, we wish to test the notion of the senses and speculate on its uses in sensitizing us to the Anthropocene, alerting us to otherwise imperceptible forms of politics, and crafting alternative futures. To what extent can the notion of the senses set our thoughts and practice in motion?
