For many non-scientists, the images and language of climate change and accompanying ecological events present as enigmatic signs. They elicit profound anxieties even as they conjure new ways of seeing the world. Environmental events are thus pushing up to the surface what are fundamentally literary problematics of writing and reading.
The Seed Books Labs project addresses the impact of today’s new climate imaginaries. In fluid, permeable books built on the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture’s Scalar platform and funded by Sweden’s The Seed Box Collaboratory, we are exploring how today’s new visual and cognitive landscapes are engendering new textual practices in Humanities disciplines.
