Narrating Landscapes explores the ways we relate to places and other living things. 

intersections of narrative and ecological knowing, of landscapes and lives

 

The Advertised Life1:

Felice Wyndham dislikes writing bios. Perhaps you sympathize. She likes to surround herself with self-sustaining systems: dishes that dry themselves on airy racks; plants that re-plant themselves season after season. She loves it when neighbors are truly friendly, and has thought about designing a magazine for cockroaches. She is the kind of person who leaves milk unattended on the stove, yet always gets back to it before it boils over.
 Dr Wyndham is research affiliate at the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, University of Oxford. Her main research focus is on ethnoecology, ecoliteracy, life histories and environmental change, and ethnographic writing.
In recent years, Wyndham has authored several articles on comparative ethnoecology and digital archives, and published a steady trickle of ethnographic poetry. She is co-editor of the volume, Ethnobiology and Biocultural Diversity, reviews editor for the open-access journal Ethnobiology Letters, and on the editorial boards of several anthropology journals.
Wyndham’s research as an ethnographer of ecological change has been supported by grants from the British Academy, the National Science Foundation, Social Science and Humanities Research Canada, and the Arts and Humanities Research Council in the UK. 
Wyndham has held teaching and/or research positions at the University of British Columbia in Canada, the University of Georgia, and the University of Oxford. Her Ph.D. is in ecological anthropology from the University of Georgia, and her BA is in biology from Brown University. She is also a proud silversword alum of Maui High School.

High-jumper doe and these flea beetles are neck and neck in the race to destroy my garden. The #fleabeetle lacework wins the pretty prize though. This #eggplant is as much emptiness as leaf. https://t.co/MJj103SWY1

1) A stranger than fiction Roman ring mystery thread: this enigmatic Roman gold ring was found in a ploughed field near Silchester in 1785. The square bezel has a portrait of the pagan goddess Venus, inscribed backwards SUNEV for use as a signet ring by the owner. Curiously... https://t.co/Ls0QcDVNzq

This putrid judge sent kids to jail on trumped up charges to make $1M w/ privatized prisons and only got 28 years in prison. May he never get out. https://t.co/KU2kuKtPRf felicesea photo
  1. The advertised life: "an emerging mode of being in which advertising not only occupies every last negotiable public terrain, but in which it penetrates the cognitive process, invading consciousness to such a point that one expects and looks for advertising, learns to lead life as an ad, to think like an advertiser, and even to anticipate and insert oneself in successful strategies of marketing." Tom Vanderbilt, The Advertised Life, in Commodify Your Dissent: Salvos from the Baffler, p.128-129.
