Description

lex·i·con n. A list of words relevant to a specific situation or shared by a group of people; a special vocabulary

How can words describe the experience of living in a time of environmental crisis? How can we describe our feelings as the seas rise around us and we are uncertain about what the future holds? Does the language we use shape our experience of the natural world?

Reflect with local environmental humanities scholars and ecoartists on how arts and culture can help us understand the feelings we might have as we think about climate change.

Come to this event prepared to hear from to local humanities scholars and horticulturists and also to participate in small group discussions.
