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.

IMO the lede was buried: "...thousands of people [will be] ineligible for unemployment benefits if their employers reopen." @amandamull thanks for the article-- What did you find re: benefits eligibility?Georgia’s most vulnerable are being offered up:

Where Are the Photos of People Dying of Covid? I've been wondering this all along-- a good article about why more images are needed, but it doesn't really answer why they aren't available. Couldn't video be taken in hospitals, with people's faces blurred?

So looking forward to this project on biocultural memory and birds in the wetlands of southern Chile 🙂

Los humedales albergan una alta riqueza de aves y la memoria de muchos pueblos. Estudiaremos esos vínculos entre cultura y naturaleza gracias al proyecto @centrohumedales en el Río Cruces @CForestalesUdeC @jtomasibarra @marquezgarciam, @ewa_to_weet @Nucleo_CESIEP

Lovely bird art by youth from St. Paul Island 😍
  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.
