How can poetry support our articulation of our relationship with our non-human world?

This webinar draws from the poems read at Tuesday’s Poetry Performance event as well as other poems from antiquity to contemporary, including spoken word. It will consider:

  • Eco-poetry – poetry that illustrates the sense of selfhood as worldliness
  • Articulation of place perception
  • Geographical imaginations and human feelings
  • Human and non-human interdependency
  • Invocation/invitation of others (human) into accounts of the environment
  • Articulation of hope
