Inhabiting the Wasteland
Spending time this morning imagining what their world is like...flourishing in the wasteland. These imaginings go against and beyond the aesthetics of American nature, human-centered land ethics, and facile despair about the end of nature. Instead they confront us with the resilience of nature and nonhuman agency where these little creatures and their parents take advantage of new opportunities in the margins. Join me next Wednesday at Austin City Hall noon for my Lunchtime Lecture on "Resilient Nature" for more on this morning's musings.
