“By Leaves We Live”: the vital politics and poetics of the tree

by

Jennifer Clarke and Rachel Harkness are convening an excellent session focused on trees, referencing Patrick Geddes’ “By Leaves We Live”, within the Conference of the Association of Social Anthropologists of the UK and Commonwealth.

Abstracts come from all over the world and take trajectories across the topic: religious practice and space; time and trees (both their metaphorical properties and their function as recording devices); private reafforestation and personal redemption; tree burial in Japanese culture; empathic relations with trees, the experience of life and death of trees, Basque politics and trees, orchards in Devon and fields near Stansted.
