After Agency conference

After Agency conference
Poznan, Poland

AFTER AGENCY - international conference open call from 12-14 November 2019 in Poznan, Poland

‘After Agency’ is a provocation. It seems that agency might be in trouble – what we think of it, what we make of it, what and who has it and what emerges in its unfolding or de-folding. Scholars have informed us of the more-than-human agencies of emergent worlds (Haraway, 2008; Tsing, 2015; Kirsky, 2015; Kohn, 2013) and the speculative becomings of/with agencies that alter the possibility of worlds (Morton, 2013; Taussig, 2018; Murphy, 2017; Weizman, 2012; Barad, 2007) in the context of capitalist violence, anthropogenic toxicities and the timely matter of life itself.
