We are now surrounded by the living products of our own ingenuity. Hybrid fish, transgenic corn, and Wolbachia mosquitoes. We tend to view such creatures with dread, thinking of them as unnatural hybrids that confuse boundaries and cross categories. But what if we found ways of loving our creations more? What if embracing these hybrids allowed us to find new ways of living with and in nature? New institutional, structural, and philosophical relationships to our genetically modified cousins might just help us survive in the Anthropocene. BIOGRAPHY Hallam Stevens (Australia/Singapore) is Associate Professor of History in the School of Humanities at Nanyang Technological University and the Associate Director of the NTU Institute of Science and Technology For Humanity.
