Plant Monsters 1
An informal discussion focused on human/ plant hybridity and shapeshifting in myth and culture. Using the Daphne myth as a starting point we will look at the ways in which humans and plants are all tangled up and what these stories can tell us about ecology, queerness and monstrosity.
