Jennifer Clarke and Rachel Harkness are convening an excellent session focused on trees, referencing Patrick Geddesâ€™ â€œBy Leaves We Liveâ€, within the Conference of the Association of Social Anthropologists of the UK and Commonwealth.
Abstracts come from all over the world and take trajectories across the topic: religious practice and space; time and trees (both their metaphorical properties and their function as recording devices); private reafforestation and personal redemption; tree burial in Japanese culture; empathic relations with trees, the experience of life and death of trees, Basque politics and trees, orchards in Devon and fields near Stansted.
