Plant Life Book Talk

October 19, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Wednesday, October 5, 7:00-8:30pm

Location: Weld Hill Research Building, 1300 Centre Street, Boston, 02131

On-site lecture and virtual livestream


Rosetta S. Elkin reveals that planting a tree can either be one of the ultimate offerings to thriving on this planet, or one of the most extreme perversions of human agency over it. Plant Life exposes the relationship between human and plant life, revealing that afforestation is not an ecological act: rather, it is deliberately political and distressingly social.

Rosetta S. Elkin is associate professor and academic director of landscape architecture at Pratt Institute, principal of Practice Landscape, and research associate at the Harvard Arnold Arboretum. She is author of Tiny Taxonomy: Individual Plants in Landscape Architecture

Parking is available on-site at the Weld Hill Research Building. Find directions here. All attendees must be masked while indoors.
