Between Us and Nature – A Reading Club #16: „Crystal Forests“

Crystal Forests – Multinaturalist Continuities  – The forest as a prism

‘The Crystal Forest’ quotes have come up various times in the Reading Club – the last time in our ‘Multinaturalism Narratives’ session. Now, also in the light of current political events in Brasil, we want to take the time reading together the full text by Eduardo Viveiros de Castro which was first published in 2007. How do forests live and think according to alternate cosmovisions and what can we learn from the Yanomami world’s structure?

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​, and you’ll receive a selection of texts.
