Economy in the Planthropocene: Plants, Solidarity, and Worldmaking

Where: The Graduate Centre, Room 1.01, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Rd, London E1 4NS, Mile End Campus


In this symposium we present more-than-human solidarity using our relationship with plants as a guide. Drawing on ‘undisciplined’ research and art, we reappraise colonial legacies through plants, unravel the work of ‘restoration’ and explore the meanings of being in solidarity with plants to reimagine worldmaking as a practice of care.
