Boston Book Festival Unbound: After “Nature Writing”

October 24, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Boston Book Festival Unbound- After Nature Writing

About the event

The 21st century’s mounting environmental crises—from toxics to extinction to a warming climate—make it crucial to free environmental writing from the gaze of the “Lone Enraptured Male” in Kathleen Jamie’s phrase. This panel of scholars and writers will consider the themes, topics, and formal elements that environmental writers can bring to their storytelling, how to handle or tell stories that support political action, and how to link issues of justice and equality with the histories, presents, and futures of our shared, changing environment.

The panel features:
Kerri Arsenault, journalist and memoirist
Kate Brown, environmental historian (MIT)
Bathsheba Demuth, environmental historian (Brown University)
Joan Naviyuk Kane, poet (Tufts University/ Institute of American Indian Arts)
Tony Perry, environmental historian (Smithsonian Institution)

This webinar is free and open to the public. The event is a collaboration between the Cogut Institute’s Initiative for Environmental Humanities at Brown (EHAB) and the Boston Book Festival.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
