The Natural History Institute and ESA presents: Story and the Ecological Imagination

One of the most fundamental human commonalities is a need for, and response to, story.  Stories connect us – to one another and to place. As the foundation of ecology, natural history – historia naturalis, literally, the story of nature – is rich with stories that can captivate a wide variety of audiences with ecological themes.

In conjunction with the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America, the ESA Natural History Section, in collaboration with the Natural History Institute and The King’s English Bookshop, presents readings and discussion with authors Julia Corbett, Thomas L. Fleischner, Susan M. Gaines, Cylita Guy, J. Drew Lanham, Nalini Nadkarni, Richard Nevle, and Stephen Trimble. 

Register in advance here for this session (this will allow participation in Q&A): After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the session.  The session will also be live-streamed here.

The King's English Bookshop is providing a virtual bookshop which features recommended titles by the presenting authors. You must create an account to place an order. Free curbside pickup is available; there is a charge for shipping.
