Sat 03.10 - Sat 05.12.20

Please note: this session has been cancelled to help contain the spread of the new coronavirus. We are looking into whether the lecture can be held online. 

The Plant Readers workshop is no ordinary reading group. During three sessions, we will stage queer relationships between Plants and their human allies and recite spells together to develop new visions of the future. A series of texts will awaken your senses to create new forms of plant-human intimacies. All this in an attempt to move – as Natasha Myers calls it – from the Anthropocene to the Plantropocene.

How long can we continue to saw off the branch on which we sit? For this sixth edition, Ecopolis is again inviting a broad range of writers, academic experts and thinkers from civil society.
