Signs and Ecology

October 7, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Readings: Chapter 2, “The Living Thought” and 3 “Soul Blindness”
Where: IPLAI (3610 McTavish, Room 21-6).

This joint reading group IPLAI-Senselab aims at exploring signs and signification from an ecological perspective. In particular, we will be reading “How Forests Think” by Eduardo Kohn, associate professor of Anthropology at McGill. The close read at this ground breaking book is meant to explore an anthropological and semiotic approach to the circulation of signs in a complex ecosystem that goes beyond the human. How do forests think? How do we think with and thorough the world we inhabit?

Time and location: Wednesdays, once per month, 15h00, alternately at IPLAI (3610 McTavish, Room 21-6) and the Senselab (1250 Guy street, Faubourg building-Concordia University, Room 630). For more info, please contact Erik Bordeleau or Eleonora Diamanti (erik.bordeleau@gmail.com; eleonora.diamanti@mail.mcgill.ca). Download outline.
