About This Series
These meetings facilitate discussions that take into account how insects/bugs/critters/species have been integral for knowledge production cutting across diverse political, social, and aesthetic thought, or practices. Insects offer us concrete, material ways to rethink the legacies or vestiges of disciplinary thinking and the practices by which different types of knowledge are created, owned, and used. By encouraging cross-disciplinary collaborations among scholars who employ a variety of sources concerning insects, a dialogue is advanced that stitches together different practices, subfields, and languages or geographies. In doing so, the topic of “insect histories” is addressed with mind to understand the social, political, economic, and epistemic significance of tiny animals encourages the participants to challenge the “normal”/dominant contours of the history of science to engage with non-human agencies. The resulting essays from this series will aspire to identify ways to think about insects as processes and multitudes, and as connective agents between and among disciplines, cultures, languages, and other norms.
