The Green World in Contemporary Poetry and Philosophy: Mapping Nature in the Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries

Since the very cradle of civilization, Nature has been one of the secular concerns of poetry and philosophy. In a classic like Walden; or Life in the Woods (1854), Henry David Thoreau said: “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately”. The woods would make him whole again; solitude and Nature would reactivate a claritas of mind in him that had apparently been overshadowed by human commerce. About a century later, Ezra Pound sang in The Cantos: “Learn of the green world what can be thy place / In scaled invention or true artistry” (81/541), aware as he was of the fact that the world is a subtle ecology of vast dimensions that needs our attention and respect.

Hip Hop Studies Conference:

Spirituality and Social Justice

April 5, 2017

Allen University, Columbia, SC

 

The music, language, dance, art, and fashion that constitute hip-hop culture have often been celebrated as a means for giving voice to marginalized people in the US and around the world. Hip hop, in short, is often conceived as a potential vehicle for achieving social justice in a world riven by racism, sexism, classism and other forms of oppression. It is perhaps just as frequently condemned for perpetuating dysfunctional values and harmful stereotypes that impede efforts to achieve a more just and equitable society.
