This lecture explores the political stakes of scholarly calls to move “beyond the human,” especially in light of past and ongoing work by women and racialized and colonized peoples to claim humanity against post-enlightenment and other forms of dehumanization. The “human” that scholars purport to decenter has been a parochial one indeed. Explaining how that is so, and with what implications, the paper combines ethnographic analysis of the cultural politics of water in the Florida everglades with reflections on feminist theories of dehumanization and interdependency to consider the politics (or, perhaps, the apolitics?) of moving beyond the human.
