“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Ecologies of Art, Architecture, and Theory

Soon, here. In celebration of James Turrell's amazing Twilight Epiphany. I wish I could be there. But I shall be at Princeton instead. I did write an essay for a volume on ecocriticism and materialism on Turrell's piece, which I've circulated.

If you are a graduate student here (welcome!) you may apply for extra money by taking a certificate in 3CT. You get to participate in two symposia of your choice and you get to take the 3CT classes. And you get an extra five grand. Probably better than sweating your labor in an intro class, which is often how schools give grads extra bucks.
