What is earth? This interdisciplinary panel explores the political, cultural and social meanings of earth from a variety of distinct perspectives: as commodity, as matter, and as sustenance. With special guest speakers including organic grower and writer Claire Ratinon and artist Phoebe Collings-James, we consider powerful and creative ways of re-imagining earth and land. 

This event is part of our season Ways of Knowing: Earth / Matter.
