This workshop will explore the writing of multispecies worlds. It will consider some of the challenges and possibilities of researching and narrating the ways of life of other species in their entangled, co-forming relationships. This is work that frequently involves moving between ethnographic, ethological, and ecological literatures and approaches in ways that raise difficult questions that are at once epistemological and ethical. The workshop will be led by writer and field philosopher Thom van Dooren.
