Hi folks! It’s been too long since I’ve written here. This is mainly due to the fact that I am at the tail end of a Master’s in Environmental Education and that has taken most of my energy (and willingness to sit by a computer any longer than is necessary). However, I am VERY lucky in the fact that I get to use my capstone project (like a thesis, but not strictly research) to launch a idea I’ve been wanting to work on for years. Despite the input of several awesome folks, I never quite got there. Now I can!
To finish up my program, I get to work on putting out the first issue of a magazine called The Field Journal. To explain the project briefly, it explores human relationships to the natural world through art and inquiry. This will be printed at the end of March. The first issue will explore a topic near and dear to my heart, what does it mean to be a naturalist. Over the past couple years, I’ve realized that this a complex idea and overlaps with a lot of different things. Being a naturalist is even problematic from certain perspectives, which has been hard for me to reconcile at times. And certainly it looks different for all of us.
The reason I am writing this here, is that I’d love people to collaborate with. It’s a big world, with lots of ideas. Here’s the original call, but please feel free to reach out and ask questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
AND, as a reward, below are some of my favorite images from the past year.
