Nonhuman Agencies in the Twenty-First-Century Anglophone Nov

Nonhuman Agencies in the Twenty-First-Century Anglophone Nov

By Yvonne Liebermann



This book offers an overview on the growing field of nonhuman studies in relation to Anglophone novels. It illuminates the variety of nonhuman actors that take centre stage in the twenty-first-century novel and the formal changes that the Anthropocene, the digital turn, the animal rights movement, and research into plant consciousness have brought to the novel as a form. The book is divided into four sections, each focusing on a different aspect of twenty-first-century literature that engages with the nonhuman. The collection investigates how the environmental changes and the increasing use of  AI technologies  have fostered the  flourishing  of genres  like the  New Weird, Climate Fiction, and speculative fiction, how it makes us embrace new  perceptions of  life in  relation to  genetic  engineering, and how it forces us to engage with newly emerging political contexts.
