In The Press

"Against all-too-human accounts of the Anthropocene, Jamie Lorimer envisions a dynamic cosmopolitics for wildlife. He demonstrates how species ‘conservation’ can somehow proceed as neither mastery nor naturalism but, instead, as necessary experiments in interspecies responsibility."—Stacy Alaimo, author of Bodily Natures: Science, Environment, and the Material Self
