Multispecies Storytelling in Sweden
Earlier this year I had the opportunity to present a new performance-lecture in collaboration with Sumugan Sivanesan – on behalf of the T. Rudzinskaite Memorial Amateur Lichenologists Society – at the symposium Multispecies Storytelling in Intermedial Practice, held at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden (Jan 25-27).
Our paper, Speculative Flummery and Cosmic Co-becomings, slipped through a time warp in conference programming to act simultaneously as the Opening Address for the Society’s Annual Convention 2087. Dr Sivanesan joined me in delivering it via spectra-link from the former west. Notable fellow presenters included Vinciane Despret, Kristiina Koskentola, Adam Dickinson, and Dance for Plants.
