This article makes the case for a feminist (re)imagination of planetary politics in the context of the normative power approach and Manners’ opening article in this special section. Arguing for an urgent turn to a politics that embraces the whole of the planet, we pose a challenge: how can we build processes and political structures that equip us with all that is needed to manage those tests, even crises, now faced by the planet? Like Manners, drawing further inspiration from Ted Chiang’s work, especially Stories of Your Life and Others and its film adaptation, Arrival, we apply a critical feminist lens to argue that the potential of a NPA in realising a planetary politics can only be fulfilled if European (and other) political and societal actors embrace four “Es”: ethic of care, empathy, emancipation and equity. Our vision is for Feminist EUropean Studies to be at one with planetary politics. Such an ambition is premised on our ability to “see” and “hear”, question, perhaps even break with the disciplining and bounding effects of the disciplines that feed into European Studies where they severely limit our ability to build connections across borders, to think in non-linear, inclusive and sustainedly reflexive ways. It is also one which necessitates accounting for the multiple sites, identities and temporalities within and beyond the founding Treaties in order to challenge anthropocentrism and envision a cosmo-polity.
