Human-environment Interactions Narrative Theory
NARMESH is a multidisciplinary research project interrogating narrative’s potential for staging, challenging, and expanding the human imagination of the nonhuman. The aim is to explore how narrative, in both contemporary (post-1990) fiction and oral storytelling, can (1) capture the ways in which humans are dependent upon the nonhuman world and (2) reconfigure people’s understanding of the nonhuman.
