"Ant(i) Economies" (an in-progress essay) by Jacob Lindgren and "Alimentary Fantasy, Coprophagic Communism, and Queer Reproduction in Maurice Maeterlink’s The Soul of the White Ant and Samuel R. Delany’s Through the Valley of the Nest of the Spiders" by Willa Smart. Self-organization in ants, ecological (non) economies, un"natural" sexual constructs, transformative fantasies, and a queer alimentarity. Includes interwoven, facsimile reproductions of instances of economic anthropomorphism in scientific literature, novels, and cinema surrounding fungus-growing leafcutter ants (Atta and Acromyrmex) and the convergent histories of agriculture between humans and insects.
