Feral theory is about undoing settler colonialism: Kelly Struthers Montford, Chloë Taylor, ‘Guest Editorial: Feral Theory’, Feral Feminisms, 6, 2017
Excerpt: Because the application of the term “wild” has been and continues to be used to oppress nonhumans and animalizable humans, ferality traverses racist routes—historically, politically, and theoretically. Building on Halberstam’s argument that anticolonial indigenous theory is anarchic—wild or feral—we can conclude that to be against the nation state, against the settler state, is to be against domestication. An anticolonial politics is thus for the wild and for the feral.
