The fourth edition of the ‘Intercalations’ series borrows its title from a 1972 science fiction novella by Ursula K. Le Guin posing ethical questions about ecocidal violence. In response to their violent destruction, which characterises our current epoch, these pages traverse woodlands by way of their semiotic, socio-political, historical, and epistemic incitements in order to reveal how practices of care, concern, and attention enable humans to inhabit this world and flourish. The exercise creates space to consider how forests can enable experiences of elegance, affirmation, and creation for a multitude of creatures. Includes contributions by Pedro Neves Margues, Eduardo Kohn, and more.
