Zachary Caple, Ph.D.

4A_Lab Fellow


Zachary Caple is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the interdisciplinary program 4A Laboratory: Art Histories, Archaeologies, Anthropologies, Aesthetics (September–December 2022). Before, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Anthropogenic Heathlands group (ANTHEA) at Aarhus University, Denmark. His research examines the multispecies landscape changes of the Holocene/Anthropocene planetary transition. Zachary received his Doctorate in Anthropology from the University of California Santa Cruz in 2017, and was a research scientist at the University of South Florida from 2017–2021. His dissertation, Holocene in Fragments: A Critical Landscape Ecology of Phosphorus in Florida, examines the phosphate fertilizer industry—and the human-altered phosphorus cycle more broadly—as an agent of environmental violence and capitalist growth. His work on chemical fertilizers has been featured in Technosphere, a collaboration of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt; Connectedness: An Incomplete Encyclopedia of the Anthropocene; and, most recently, the online publication Feral Atlas.
