Natasha Myers’ work is grounded in a thinking through of feminism as a political theory of the asymmetries of power in relations not only between humans but also between humans and the “more than human” world. Much of Myers’ work explores the possibilities of an aspirational episteme in service to plant beings, termed the Planthropocene.
