  1. Miyazaki Hayao’s Animism and the Anthropocene.Shoko Yoneyama - forthcoming - Theory, Culture and Society:026327642110305.
    The need for a reconsideration of human-nature relationships has been widely recognized in the Anthropocene. It is difficult to rethink, however, because there is a crisis of imagination that is deeply entrenched within the fundamental premises of modernity.

    Although critiques of humanism are not new, the currency of posthumanist discourse on the nonhuman – the animal, the environment, or the object – suggests rising concerns about humanity’s place in the ecological order.
