Ecopoetics Along Shorelines


April 20, 2018

This week’s readings focus on areas that have been altered by human force, whether this is by contemporary politics, settlers, urbanization, climate change, or landscape reformation.  Alaimo writes that the only way to seek restorative justice after such transformations is to engage in a “self-understanding as a species” and abandon our myopic viewpoint; Sze notes that we must abide by “co-equal goals” to find justice.  The Muckleshoot article outlines dozens of recovery plans that could better the environment in theory, but have hit many obstacles concerning funding, pollution, habitat loss and salmon population diminishing, over-water structures and conflicting land use.
