Cymene Howe

Cymene Howe is Professor of Anthropology at Rice University. Her books include Intimate Activism (Duke 2013) and Ecologics: Wind and Power in the Anthropocene (Duke 2019), which follows the human and more-than-human lives intertwined with renewable energy futures. She is co-editor of The Johns Hopkins Guide to Theory and The Anthropocene Unseen: A Lexicon (Punctum 2020). Her current research focuses on adaptation to ice-loss in the Arctic region and sea level rise in coastal cities around the world. She co-produced the documentary film Not Ok: A Little Movie about a Small Glacier at the End of the World and, with Icelandic partners, installed the world’s first memorial to a glacier felled by climate change. The Okjökull memorial event in Iceland served as a global call to action and in memory of a world rapidly melting away.
