HUMANxNATURE is an anthology of writers reaching out from beyond the confines of their disciplines to engage the natural world. This collection of essays is a recognition of the ways the world shapes us—and how increasingly, we leave our own inescapable print on the world. As our relationship to the nature world changes, we ask writers to explore what nature gives to us, and what we might owe in return.
Topics include: recolonizing the vegetal record, plants and myth, why we love (and need) to name our plants, and misunderstood desolation.
