Afterword: conversations with Jane Bennett

Jane Bennett, Andreas Bandak, Daniel Martyn Knight

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The afterword takes the form of a conversation with Jane Bennett. It explores the methods and connections in Michel Serres’s work in relation to the production of knowledge about humans, nature, and the planet. It concludes that Serres might help start conceiving an anthropology that does not just operate on knowledge frequently marked by power struggles but comprehension. Comprehension allows a novel appreciation in and with bodies of what knowledge might imply and accordingly may allow the reader porously to devise better ways to inhabit the world.
