Dr. NATASHA MYERS on Growing the Planthroposcene /204

For The Wild

Science & Medicine

In this episode of For The Wild, we are offered a palpable reminder that we cannot become accustomed to life in the Anthropocene - to do so is to fall peril to the traps of apocalyptic thinking. Instead, this week’s guest, Dr. Natasha Myers cultivates a body of thought and practice that prioritizes and fosters the intertwined relationship between plants and people, aptly referred to as the Planthroposcene. Natasha leads us to a world where magic happens through our active collaboration with plant kin. How can these connective practices provide diverse ways of knowing through a boundary-breaking experience? How might this embodiment cosmically and intuitively push us towards deeper connection and radical imagination? Natasha Myers is an associate professor in the Department of Anthropology at York University, director of the Plant Studies Collaboratory, convener of the Politics of Evidence Working Group, co-founder of Toronto’s Technoscience Salon, and accomplice to Toronto’s Indigenous Land Stewardship Circle. Music by Sunshine Shadow and Eliza Edens.
