Abstract: The rather sobering realization of the extent of the unfolding socio-ecological death world (to use a Mbembeian expression), both human and more-than-human, forms an affective background, if not a basis, for the meditation at hand. I take the expanding necoroscape very seriously, and it suffuses and centers this thesis. Drawing on an auto-ethnography of my home environment as well as the situatedness of an environmental justice organization at which I interned in said environment, making use of, for example, historically and philosophically attuned close readings and memories of landscapes along with recollections of conversations with fellow interns and community members, I elaborate something like an overdetermined ecological haunting and demonstrate an overdetermined figuration of what constitutes the ecological in the first place.
