The Language of Trees: A Conversation with Alison Hawthorne Deming and Kathleen Dean Moore

April 26 @ 2:30 pm - 3:15 pm EDT

The Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment, Orion Magazine and The Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology present the third event in a series to celebrate Orion’s latest anthology, Old Growth on Tuesday April 26, 2:00 – 3:15pm ET.

“The Language of Trees” will feature a conversation between Alison Hawthorne Deming, author of Zoologies: On Animals and the Human Spirit, and Kathleen Dean Moore, author of Earth’s Wild Music: Celebrating and Defending the Songs of the Natural World. The event will foster a dialogue around the language of trees: how they communicate with one another, and how their futures are shaped by the language with which humans describe them. Moderating the event is Mary Evelyn Tucker, co-author of Journey of the Universe and co-founder of Yale’s Forum on Religion and Ecology.

The event continues a series celebrating the release of Old Growth: The Best Writing About Trees from Orion Magazine. Prior events in the series featured Robin Wall Kimmerer, Robert Macfarlane, David G. Haskell, Peter Wohlleben, Jessica J. Lee, and Sumana Roy.

This event is hosted by Orion Magazine, The Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment, Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology, Yale Environmental Humanities and the Yale Forest Forum. Please contact yff@yale.edu with any questions.

This webinar will also simultaneously stream via YouTube for anyone who prefers to watch there. This link will be shared with registered participants ahead of the event.

THE WEBINAR WILL BE RECORDED AND MADE AVAILABLE AFTER THE TALK.
