About This Book

Darcie DeAngelo is an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Oklahoma. As an environmental and medical anthropologist trained in visual methods, her work engages with human–nonhuman relations such as the love between landmine detection rats and their handlers, the excitement of dogs and humans as they hunt for rats in cities, and the kinship of humans and their sourdough starters. From 2023 to 2024, she was the Annie Clark Tanner Fellow in Environmental Humanities at the University of Utah where she is writing her second book, For the Love of Rats, which explores the surprising relationships between rats and humans across time and space. Her first book is forthcoming with the UC Press Atelier Series. She also edits the journal Visual Anthropology Review. Find more of her work here: https://www.darcie-deangelo.com/

Rebecca Kastleman is Assistant Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. Her work engages with modern drama, theater, and performance and its intersections with social thought. Her book manuscript in progress, Profaning Acts: Drama After Religion on the Modern Stage, reveals how a resurgent fascination with religion transformed the twentieth-century theater. Her research has appeared in venues, including Modern Drama, Theatre Journal, Theatre Survey, American Quarterly, PAJ, and Modernism/modernity Print Plus.

Joshua O Reno is Professor of Anthropology at Binghamton University. He has written books on the subject of waste, including Waste Away (2016) and Military Waste (2019), as well as one, with Britt Halvorson, on White supremacy and the American Midwest, Imagining the Heartland (2022), all of which were published with the University of California Press. With Holly High and Pluto Press, he edited As if Already Free on the legacy of David Graeber. He has a new book expected in 2024 from the University of Chicago Press titled Home Signs, which is an autoethnographic account of living beyond and beside language.

Leah Zani is a public anthropologist and author based in Oakland, California. She uses creative and literary methods to investigate the social impact of explosives. Zani’s most recent book, Strike Patterns, won the 2023 Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) Gold Prize for Creative Nonfiction. Strike Patterns is a hybrid memoir combining their fieldwork in the former battlefields of Laos with their experiences being raised by two trans parents, one of whom is a Vietnam War veteran. She is also the author of Bomb Children, an academic monograph of ethnography and poetry, and is currently working on a book about dynamite.
