Please join us on Monday, April 8, for the launch of The Ecopoesis Project, a multi-year sequence of collaborative think-tanks exploring front-line concerns around ecology, climate, and spatial expression. As our everyday lives are increasingly suffused by the impacts of climate change and climate chaos, The Ecopoesis Project will explore the language, syntax, diction, form, media, and representations of ecological uncertainty.
The thematic catalyst for this spring’s inaugural event is the work of ecological philosopher Timothy Morton. Morton’s recent books Dark Ecology and Being Ecological provoke us to consider new modes of ecological awareness that reflect impending crisis but also offer ways to adapt to and accept profound change. On Monday, April 8 at 6:30pm, Morton will deliver a public keynote talk reflecting on these questions as well as on the products of the Ecopoesis workshop staged earlier in the day.
