Everyone is welcome to our Late Summer Lecture Series 2021, as we roam across The Past, Present, and Future in literature and culture.

The escaped tiger of Jonathan Lethem’s Chronic City (2009) invokes issues of urban nature. Considering the role of extra-human agency in a range of ecocritical texts on New York since 1890, Paul’s lecture will track Lethem’s tiger to identify the risk of naturalizing politically produced conditions by appealing to a network of human and extra-human actants.
