Towards an interconnectedness of science and senses/ Intensive writing course at UdK

To become another. Been teaching all week an intensive course on Nature Writing - towards transformation and interconnectedness at UdK. We looked at the survival strategies of viruses, bacteria, mushrooms, genetic modification and poisons. We visited the Robert Koch Institute, spend some time at the National Gallery listening to paintings and discussed silk punk, science writing, sci-fi, speculative fiction, creative non-fiction with texts by Karen Russell, Octavia Butler, Benjamin Labatout, Merlin Sheldrake and Natassja Martin. Our lives are so entangled. Loved working things out with the students, loved to listen to their ideas, loved to spend 5 days or 35 hours together exploring.
