Daisy Hildyard is a British author. Her most recent book, The Second Body (2017), is an essay on how the porous boundaries of the Anthropocene shape contemporary human experiences. Her first novel Hunters in the Snow (2014) won the Somerset Maugham Award at the Society of Authors (UK), and a ‘5 Under 35’ honorarium at the National Book Awards (USA). A new novel, Emergency (2022), tells stories of global connections and human-nonhuman relationships within a small rural area of northern England.
In December 2020, Daisy Hildyard gave a talk at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG) as part of James Langdon's seminar 'Rare Bird Economics' module (HfG department of Communication Design), and Katharina Weinstock's seminar 'From Readymade to Hyperobject: Critical objects between art and reality' (HfG department of Art theory and Media Philosophy).
