In this session we will be looking at Elizabeth Povinelli, ‘Introduction’ and ‘The Four Axioms of Existence’ in Between Gaia and Ground: Four Axioms of Existence and the Ancestral Catastrophe of Late Liberalism (2021) 1-11 and 15-35.


We invite you to join an interdisciplinary, cross-institutional reading group, focused on encounters between laws and different scholarly traditions in the context of the Anthropocene. In 2022, we are exploring texts that consider intersections between subjectivity and matter, the human/inhuman, and the idea of the inhumanities as jurisgenerative.

We are associated with and share common intellectual and activist pursuits with the La Trobe Climate Network.

The group is convened by Dr Kathleen Birrell.  We meet fortnightly, in hybrid mode (in person and online).  In person participation will be at La Trobe Law School, Martin Building (MB) Room 241 - Please see H6 of the Inner Campus Map

Please email Kathleen Birrell to RSVP and for access to reading resources.
