ecocriticism and environmental studies
Mapping Meaning brings together artists, scientists and scholars to explore new modes of acting in the face of social and ecological crises. Inspired by a photograph from 1918 depicting an all-female survey crew, Mapping Meaning supports the creative work and scholarship of those working at edges and ecotones, who are pushing against traditional disciplinary boundaries. Since 2010 this multi-generational collective has been gathering together around experimental knowledge practices.
Ic þa wiht geseah
heo wæs wrætlice
Wundor wearð on wege
on weg feran
wæter wearð to bane
I saw the wight
It was splendidly,
The wonder was on the wave;
going on its way.
water became bone.
