The Anhinga and the Anthropocene: Ecoliteracy in Many Languages (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: The Anhinga and the Anthropocene: Ecoliteracy in Many Languages
Abstract: Dr. Barbara Eckstein (University of Iowa) examines the meaning and import of ecoliteracy in the anthropocene, arguing that non-human species have their own stories. As we seek to practice a "wild hospitality" and create communities which are attuned to the natural world, we must attend to the spaces other species make for themselves and recognize the "slow violence" to which they are subjected. This violence is, itself, inescapably bound up with colonization and capitalism.
