“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

Class at U of W Ontario

Tilottama Rajan, thanks for having me! I just finished my talk for the class, here in the bus station (Lisbon). In some ways I'm even happier with it than with my talk for the following day's conference.

It's called "Ecology without Presence: Some Romantic Models," and the poems I'm reading are "The Tables Turned" and "There Was a Boy," by Wordsworth.

Sounds like a great talk, Tim! Any chance it can be turned into a podcast so more of us can benefit from it?
