Emma Marris is the author of Wild Souls: Freedom and Flourishing in the Non-Human World and Rambunctious Garden: Saving Nature in a Post-Wild World.

She also writes about the human and nonhuman worlds, and the enduringly complex relationships between them for National Geographic, the Atlantic, the New York Times, Wired, and other publications.

"Wild Animal Ethics and Environmental Writing"

Emma Marris will discuss her career path as a writer of books and magazine articles about environmental science and policy. She'll also share the main argument of her latest book, Wild Souls, which ventures into "pop philosophy" by looking at whether our ethical obligations to wild animals are different in a humanized world. Is the old axiom to "let nature take its course" still enough?
