Exploring Early Ideas of the Marvelous Natural World
Rebecca Bushnell

Long before the Romantics embraced nature, people in the West saw the human and nonhuman worlds as both intimately interdependent and violently antagonistic. In this talk based on her recent anthology of nature writing before 1700, The Marvels of the World, Rebecca Bushnell offers a corrective to the still-prevalent tendency to dismiss premodern attitudes toward nature as simple or univocal.

This is an in person event.
