Chapter 8 looks at the potential of inhuman memory as a collaborator in geographies of resistance, refusal, and repair. It explores the potential of the earth as an archive and a journey fellow in struggles of resistance that can activate shared social and racialized histories against a history of the inhuman-inhumane. Through an engagement with Caribbean and other literatures, the chapter explores the potential for the inhuman as a counterarchive of materiality that challenges absented and erased memory on the surface. It argues that tactics of inhuman intimacies are a political valence that give the earth a different future as an archival medium, and in response to geotrauma. Black earth is theorized as a way to understand the inhuman beyond either dialectical epistemes or alterities, and to see subjectivity as intramaterial.
