Unsustainable politics and subjects (Third Session)
The collision between the expansive dynamics of capitalism and the physical limits of the planet undermines the material bases that sustain life. But human life is not only sustained by nature, its resources and cycles, the social metabolism also sustains itself by a set of relationships that take care of vulnerable and finite bodies. And this relational system is also in crisis.
The eco-social crisis is also a crisis of identity. It calls into question certain notions of identity, progress and emancipation that could be described as fossilised.
Historically, feminism has drawn attention to how this notion of identity was built upon the subordination of women, but it has not sufficiently related this critique to the evident insertion of human life into nature. Eco-feminism brings light in this direction and forces both movements to reflect anew.
