image(i_nation): In the first session (Fri, April 2, 2 pm–4:30 pm) we will read and think about how landscapes and nature are compressed into human-made images. Then we will talk about and discuss other modes of imagining concepts of seeing and representation.

in(ter)vention: Our second meet-up (Fri, April 16, 2 pm–4:30 pm) will be focused on human interventions in what is broadly described as “nature”. We will focus on the invention of strategies that have been developed to deal with the ecological consequences.

in*version: Last but not least on Fri, April 30, 2 pm–4:30 pm we will try to invert already existing anthropocentric, insufficient and exploitative conceptions of nature and landscapes by reading and learning from non-eurocentric epistemologies that create other versions of knowledge about nature.
