Formexperiments im Anthropocene

In her dissertation project, located at the interface of philosophy and literary studies, Julia Rüegger examines contemporary theoretical and prose texts that address the entanglements of the new earth age in a formally aesthetic and epistemologically productive way. She is particularly interested in the model of 'entanglement' as well as in a planetary and deep-temporal perspective that takes into account different scales of space and time. In addition to a close reading of the selected texts with regard to formal and knowledge-generating aspects, she also examines their discourse-historical implications. With this approach, she expands Anthropocene research in literary and cultural studies with an approach that illuminates experimental procedures of contemporary theory and prose production in their interaction.
