Linda Russo's "Of the relational local: A resurgence of ecopoetics post-conference 'plenary'" in Jacket2

"Drawing attention to the relational local (with bodies, culture, community, landscape, and ecosystem as site), not content with describing the shapes and ways and effects of settler-dominant knowledges and environments, attending affectively, through inquiry, to what may be otherwise overlooked, developing new forms of attention – in these ways, contemporary poets intervene."
Thankful to be included in Linda Russo's "Of the relational local: A resurgence of ecopoetics post-conference 'plenary'" conversation at Jacket2 alongside Matthew Cooperman, Adam Dickinson, Megan Kaminski, Brenda Sieczkowski, Anna Lena Phillips Bell, Sarah de Leeuw, Michelle Detorie, Heidi Lynn Staples, and Rita Wong.
