Ecopoetics Along Shorelines


Waves, Ecological boundaries, Socio-natures

April 12, 2018

This week we consider the role of waves in forming boundaries between land and water (Raichlen), a classification scheme for defining ecological boundaries at different scales (Strayer et al.), and competing definitions of scale and environmental justice in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta (Sze et al.)—this delta being a transition zone between land and water, and salt and fresh water, whose edges have been reshaped by settler infrastructure and economic projects.

Thinking across these texts, how do boundaries drawn around or between natural and social phenomena inform sense-making practices along shorelines?
