This workshop will offer prompts and readings to generate work on the theme of belonging. Bruno Latour writes that “all forms of belonging are undergoing metamorphosis.” Whether we consider belonging in terms of place, culture, tradition, gender, or habitat, the ground beneath our feet is shifting. In essay, memoir, or hybrid form, we’ll explore place and displacement, nature and culture, the human, and the animal—all linked by the ecological truth that everything is relational.
