Queer Ecologies

of Extinction and the Multispecies Futures of the Baltic Sea

The project addresses multispecies ecologies of the Baltic Sea with questions around the politics of space and time – for instance time scales (modern history, natural history), life/death ecologies and ecosystem temporalities, paleoecology and geology – and intragenerational justice and ethics.

Marietta Radomska, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in Environmental Humanities at Linköping University (Unit Gender Studies); director of The Eco- and Bioart Lab; co-director of The Posthumanities Hub; and co-founder of Queer Death Studies Network.

Cecilia Åsberg, PhD, is Professor of Gender, Nature, Culture at Linköping University; Guest professor Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway; Founder and Director of The Posthumanities Hub; Fellow of the Rachel Carson Centre at Ludvig Maximilian University in Munich and the Royal Swedish Colloquia.

The Eco- and Bioart Lab (EBL) connects artists, artistic researchers and other practitioners, as well as doctoral students whose practice and research focus on art and the environment in their broadest understanding.

The Posthumanities Hub (PH) is a feminist research group and a multi-university platform for more-than-human humanities, making art meet science and society.

EBL and PH are members of the State of the Art Network (SOTAN): a Nordic-Baltic transdisciplinary collaboration focused on the role, responsibility, and potential of art and culture in the Anthropocene.
