Critical Commentary

This article is based on a lecture given by the author at the International Workshop "Acting with Nonhuman Entities: Posthumanist Explorations between Anthropology and Science Studies" held at Kyoto University in the Institute for Research in Humanities on March 3-4, 2012. It introduces the reader to the emerging sciences of plant sensing through ethnographic conversations in American and German molecular biology laboratories. Building on her earlier work, Myers explores the affective entanglements of plants and scientists in the ongoing experimentation with plants.
