The Globalisation of Plants

Workshop and Panel Discussion led by:
Maja and Reuben Fowkes (translocal.org)

4.30 – 8pm, Saturday 6 October 2018
An afternoon of botanic interactions on the ecological realities of travelling plants and the emotional reactions that vegetal migration provokes in zealous circles. Why do distinctions made between native and invasive plant species often mirror, evoke or amplify hostile attitudes to human migrants? How have artists and writers sought to unearth the entangled natural and cultural histories that overlay societal attitudes towards the mobility of the plant world? Should ecologically-beneficial visitors be treated as welcome guests rather than alien intruders? And in the light of anthropogenic climate change, is it incumbent on us to make space for vegetal refugees from native environments that are turning hostile?
