Planetary Entanglements and Entrapments

∞ “Planetary Entanglements and Entrapments: Review of Lukáš Likavčan’s Introduction to Comparative Planetology (pdf) – Mojca Penca

Mojca Penca is a PhD candidate in Literary Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her current interests lead her to explore the curious and oftentimes puzzling intersections of Asian American literature, environmental humanities and Hallyu. Studying the impact of cultural imperialism on the ecologies of the Pacific Rim, Mojca previously authored a paper on the politics of (un)natural disasters in Hawaii. She later continued this questioning of narratives around colonialism in her rereading of the “controversial” conclusion to Frantz Fanon’s Black Skin, White Masks, which resulted in her second publication, entitled “Fanon & Sartre: Cracking through the Zone of Nonbeing.”
