Vincent Bruyére is an associate professor of French and a faculty affiliate in the Center for the Study of Human Health at Emory University. His research draws on literary theory, visual culture, and the history of the body to historicize the politics of life, health, and sustainability. He is the author of Perishability Fatigue: Forays Into Environmental Loss and Decay (Columbia, 2018). His new project, “Early/Modern/Future,” examines how concepts debated within early modern studies, such as the notion of anachronism, can redirect our attention to the ways in which predictive science addresses issues of temporality, vulnerability, and transience.
