Care for the Stranded
In conversation

What can we learn from marine mammals about endings? Join cultural theorist Astrida Neimanis to discuss care for the dead in the time of endings at this free, online event. Part of the 2021 Critical Poetics Summer School.

Event details

In this free, online talk, cultural theorist Astrida Neimanis draws on research undertaken with international artist Patty Chang and wildlife pathologist Aleksija Neimanis to explore care for the dead in the time of endings. What can we learn from marine mammals about endings, at a time when so many beings are stranded, far from places they had come to know as home?
