Unsettling the Sovereign Wild
Intervening in debates over post-humanist responses to climate change, this chapter engages black feminist and indigenous critique to explore the role afro-fabulation plays in contemporary catastrophism. Reading the play and film Beasts of the Southern Wild in relation to a Foucauldian and indigenous critique of sovereignty, this chapter argues that our dreams of rewilding the world after racial capitalism will still need to be decolonized.
