In a Body as Queer as Nature: on a queer.femme.ancestral eco-poetics
September 26 @ 7:00 pm
This panel takes up the question of eco-poetics as a queer, indigenous, and femme practice. The panelists will discuss their relationships to land-body intimacies, and the overt and discreet ways these concerns manifest in their work. How does ecopoetic practice link us to the collective? We will discuss naming as both a personal and writerly problem, and the related issue of sounding—how do we invoke connection with our local ecosystems while experiencing disconnection from ancestral languages and lands? How do we access ancestral knowledge with broken lines? We will discuss the freedoms and the limits.
