Writing Nature: From a Female POV—How it could save the world Panel Discussion
How do female writers portray nature in works of fiction and essays? How does culture color that perspective? Nature writing has long been the domain of primarily white male writers. Today, women are staking their claim on the genre in original ways. How does their perspective enrich what the Scottish author Kathleen Jamie has called the archetype of “A Lone, Enraptured Male.”
This panel “Writing Nature: From a Female POV—How it could save the world” took place on Sunday, October 20, 2019 during the Nature: Through Her Eyes festival in Perpignan, France hosted by the VII Academy. Panel conducted in both English and French.
