Open Maps of the Literary Wilderness
Join writer and instructor Josh Massey to explore the joyous and troubled intersection of literature and the woods. In this lecture, knowledge of forest mapping and biomimicry are brought to bear on the wild fields of literature. Older tales of European bush workers, First Nations sacred text, and specific literary forms such as the prose poem and gothic tale—emerge upon an expansive map of the literary forest that inspires us to engage with the full diversity of a fenceless discipline. What function does conservation play, and how can we define stewardship in the context of the literary ecosystem?
Soup, Coffee and Tea will be served.
