PFN – Dark Matter: Women Witnessing Seeks Submissions. Theme: “Human Bodies In (and Out of) Place”
March 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Submissions are restricted to women and nonbinary people
Even as the conditions for human life on earth destabilize, even as ecosystems collapse, and bodies both human and nonhuman are uprooted from their homelands, even as technologies enable and encourage unprecedented forms of disconnection, human bodies are rediscovering old ways—and finding new and remarkable ways—to come into relation with place. In the last decade especially, we’ve gained an enormous amount of scientific knowledge about trees, about the mycelial realm, about the waters, about our atmosphere and cosmos. And in many cases, it’s been accompanied by a willingness to listen in ways that, except for indigenous peoples, we have not done before.
Issue #16 (Deadline: March 17, 2023) will center on the question of human bodies in (and out of) place. What brings us into profound relation to place—and what pulls us out? In a social world that feels less and less place-dependent, and a physical world that is being reconfigured by climate change and habitat loss, how do we sustain our connection to physical place? How does being in profound relation to place change everything between, around and about us?
