The material conditions necessary for life include food. Humans have been growing theirs for over eleven millennia. Agriculture today accounts for more greenhouse gas emissions than any other human activity, and it accounts for all of us. Culture today rests on cultivation, art included, few exceptions. How does our agricultural production affect our other cultural productions?

WHERE – English Department, 244 Greene St., 8th-Floor “Graduate Reading Room”
