Entanglements. TransForming Knowledge, Practice and Policy
Having its roots in physics to describe the mutual influence of our universe’s particles even across vast distances, entanglement is an appropriate metaphor for the co-constitution of supposedly separate identities through relationality and dynamic interactions (or "intra-actions" rather) between and within systems in spacetime. Self and other, human and nonhuman, nature and culture are interdependent agents rather than autonomous entities. By the same token, knowledge and meaning is co-produced by different academic and fields and expertise outside academia as well as by animals, machines and other nonhuman participants in the world-creating dance. The book series Entanglements seeks to promote this understanding by soliciting work that entangles disciplines, concepts, methods and practices in the interest of a radical inter- and transdisciplinarity and, not least of all, for a sustainable planet at large.
