Children in the Anthropocene

Copyright Karen Malone

Children in the Anthropocene is a research project premised on the import of making kin and being kin. The ‘situatedness’ of being child at this time of the Anthropocene is about recognising we have always been in relation with kin and how to consider how to reconstitute our ‘ecological community’. That is, as nature, we are human and nonhuman, we are beings in common, entangled, sensing, touching, sharing ecologically our posthumanist selves. Within the project Children in the Anthropocene – there are five research themes: children sensing ecologically; children’s bodies on damaged landscapes; children’s multi-species companions; children’s watery lives and children’s natural play.
