Workshop with David Abram - "Animism and the Earth: On Language and the Ecology of Sensory Experience"

Following his lecture on Wednesday, David Abram will be teaching a two hour workshop - "Animism and the Earth: On Language and the Ecology of Sensory Experience." No RSVP is required, but space is limiited. 

David Abram, Ph.D., cultural ecologist and geophilosopher, is the author of Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology, and of The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-than-Human World. A close student of the traditional ecological knowledge systems of indigenous cultures around the world, Abram advocates for a reappraisal of "animism" as a complexly nuanced and ecologically viable worldview. A distinguished teaching fellow of Schumacher College in England, Abram recently held the international Arne Naess Chair in Global Justice and the Environment at the University of Oslo. Abram also serves as creative director of the Alliance for Wild Ethics (AWE).

This event is sponsored by the Anthropology Department, the Psychology Department, and the Sustainability Committee.
