omg the accompanying pics! the cat, the pigeon. oh, and overheard in my Caribbean Lit class today, when one student was chatting with another at the break: "I was reading Morton last night for Serenity's class and crying, just crying [D.E.M. here gets nervous], it's so beautiful--that point about the Big Dipper and the stars [D.E.M. makes note to self to relay info to TM.] How there are more stars..."
^^^love this comment. that is actually how my friends and I talk about encountering your writing/talks/blog as well. We just really appreciate coming across this body of literature and study after studying environmental studies for a few years. it just makes things we've learned about policy, human/nature relations, make more sense. and it also leaves us with lots of questions, different questions than our last orientation within environmental studies left us with. Before it was often "how do we go back to our state of nature? How do we move forward by looking back?" Now we are asking things like "how do we take responsibility for ourselves in new ways? How do we engage with nonhuman objects in ways that allow them to have agency?" Not saying these are the right questions, but they are something, and I know I can speak for my friends studying this too, this something has given us hope.
Nice t-shirt Tim ;-)
