Editors: Julian Brigstocke & Tehseen Noorani

We live in times of social, mental and environmental crisis. Can we learn to listen better to voices that escape the usual registers of meaning? Can doing so help us address these multiple ecological crises? The contributions to this book search for more sustainable, creative, and empowering relationships with the non-human and more-than-human world. The extensively illustrated collection of essays, stories, songs, drawings, and colour photographs explores creative ways of listening with the materials, energies and vitality of non-human life. Drawing on poetry, political activism, art, and scholarly research, the essays search for new ways of inhabiting a damaged world.

Contributors: Claire Blencowe, Sara Bowler, Julian Brigstocke, Jo Collinson Scott, Leila Dawney, Samuel Kirwan, Gail McConnell, Holli McEntegart, Naomi Millner; Tehseen Noorani, Rachel Jane Liebert, Polly Wright.
