What Should We Do With Our ‘Reptile Brains’? Mythical and Animal Menageries of the Reptilian Within and Without is a project of pre- and post-humanist fieldwork encounters and writings on the idea of biological deep-time. Reptiles become a companion species to think with, exposing the presence and reactionary survivability of mythic and real reptilian alligators, along the Mississippi, in myth and media, and in misleading moments in the history of evolutionary neurobiology.
What Should We Do With Our ‘Reptile Brains’? is a collaboration with Louise Emily Carver, part of the published materials emerging from the Zooetics projects with MIT Architecture and Gediminas Urbonas, which explore the potential to connect with the noetics and poetics of non-human life in the context of the planetary ecological imbalance.
