Ukrainian update

Regular readers will know of my interest in Ukraine, where I lived for a year as a Canada-USSR Scholar in 1989-90, and where I’ve visited at least ten times since, for varying lengths of time. I’ve been following events unfolding there from afar, and have begun a blog called UKR-TAZ: A Ukrainian Autonomous Zone, which […]

And plenty of […]

Kochelsee

I’m at the Vollmar Akademie by Lake Kochel in the Bavarian Alps, just a short train ride beyond the last S-Bahn station south of Munich, for “Studying the Environment – Working Across Disciplines.” The Rachel Carson Center has got a bunch of us together here to hammer out some ideas for inter/trans/disciplinarity in environmental research.

We’ve hit 400*

More here and here and here. We haven’t been there in (a) 55 years (b) 800,000  years (c) 3 million years (d) all of the above Can someone please turn down the thermostat? *The exclamation mark that was originally in this title bothered me; seemed too celebratory (hardly the intent).

Dark earth days

Composing a worthwhile Earth Day post takes more energy than I have today, so instead I’ll link to Jeremy’s Earth post at Struggle Forever!  It articulates a thought I often feel on this day (surrounded as I get by students eager to maternalize the planet) but in a way that resonates with the weirdness of […]

Talking in Amsterdam

I’ll be giving the following talk next Wednesday, February 6, at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. It’s part of the series Where Are We Going, Walt Whitman? An Ecosophical Roadmap for Artists and Other Futurists. (The series looks incredible. I wish I could be there for all the other talks and events.)
