About the Author

Vicki Kirby is Professor of Sociology in the School of Social Sciences, The University of New South Wales. The motivating question in her research is the riddle of the nature/culture division because so many political and ethical evaluations and decisions are configured in terms of this opposition. Her books include Quantum Anthropologies: Life at Large (Duke 2011); Judith Butler: Live Theory (Continuum 2006) and Telling Flesh: The Substance of the Corporeal (1997).


"What if Culture was Nature all Along? stands out as both a methodological and a theoretical volume. It succeeds in presenting and exploring the complexities and the co-implication of culture and nature, thought and matter, human and nonhuman, science and sociology, life and death, in action. It thus demonstrates that if nature is 'writing' all the way down, writing can be neither cultural nor natural, but remains--and this is one of Derrida's major lessons--entirely other." --Stefan Herbrechter, Coventry University, Australian Humanities Review
"What If Culture Was Nature All Along? is a collection of 11 essays curated by Vicki Kirby that proves that there is still something new to be said about feminist new materialisms and that there is value in facing this topic anew ... Kirby's anthology not only adds to ongoing debates, but also puts feminist new materialisms into action, and by doing so she offers an insight into what feminist new materialisms can still do (and how)EL The starting point for all the essays in this collection is an engaged and generous approach, full of curiosity and unable to be satisfied with shaky theoretical constructions. Thus, although essays engage in different topics and develop unique perspectives, the common attitude [is] of affirmative critique and genuine concern." --Monika Rogowska-Stangret, University of Warsaw, Hypatia
