Between Us and Nature – A Reading Club #15: „Multinaturalist Narratives“

Within the special ‘Nature Writing’ program of the 18. international literature festival berlin (ilb), in session #15 of our ‘Between Us and Nature – A Reading Club’ we will explore multinaturalist narratives from alternate cosmovisions.

[Amazonian] multinaturalism affirms not so much a variety of natures as the naturalness of variation – variation as nature[1].”

In ‘Between Us and Nature – A Reading Club’ we read texts together related to natural sciences, art, anthropology, postcolonialism, and (post)anthropocene, chosen from a female perspective looking beyond disciplines.

Those who would like to attend the reading session, please rsvp via email to betweenusnature@gmail.com, and you’ll receive a selection of texts.
