Summer 2024


In this issue:

• Lacy Johnson, founder of the Houston flood museum, couldn’t swim until three years ago, when, after a series of floods in her neighborhood, she signed herself up for swimming lessons. This essay will use Lacy’s experience to consider how we as a species might survive the rising tides all around us: not by seeking higher ground, but by learning to swim.

• Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing visits a city in Indonesia where floods are smothered by concrete

• We report from Baltimore and lower Manhattan, where efforts are being made to surface underground rivers

• Plus new work from Lulu Miller, Diane Wilson, and Aimee Nezhukumatathil
