CAF gave Elizabeth Tavella (left) and Eva Spiegelhofer a grant for “Animated Wor(l)ds: Language and Relationality for Multispecies Kinship,” a multimedia born-digital project that brings together over 25 scholars, poets, artists, and activists from around the world. The project is intended for both academic and public outreach and as an educational tool for disseminating principles of multispecies ethics and relational ecologies.

Elizabeth and Eva secured an online publisher for Animated Wor(ld)s and the services of illustrator Nicole Neidhardt. The first issue is scheduled for November 2024. Until then, you can follow the emergence of Animated Wor(ld)s on Instagram and X.

Elizabeth holds a Ph.D. in Romance Languages and Literatures from the University of Chicago, and is a postdoctoral scholar in the Humanities Division. Eva is on the faculty of Philological and Cultural Studies at the University of Vienna, where she coordinates the activities of the Vienna Anthropocene Network.
