I can feel a glacier flipping in my chest.
I’m a journalist, scholar, poet, and admirer of all things wild. My work, both artistic and within an academic context, is focused on the more-than-human world that surrounds us, on glaciers and the landscapes they form, on bodies of water, forests, and edible plants. I am concerned with how text and the world relate to each other and how poetry engages in making and unmaking the world. I love researching; it suffuses everything I do. Ecocriticism, animistic philosophies, and various strains of the environmental humanities inform my work.
Writing with Glaciers: Towards a Glacial Poetics in Contemporary Transamerican Poetries of the Anthropocene
My project aims to yoke together ecocritical thinking, new materialism, and animist philosophy as critical approaches to reading contemporary Anthropocene poetries with an emphasis on text-world relations.
