The Curious Kingdom of Fungi
This illustrated seminar introduces participants to the fascinating natural and cultural histories of fungi. Participants will get see and experience a variety of fungi in their various forms and manifestations.
Following the seminar we’ll engage in lively discussion to explore the wider implications of fungi in the context of a rapidly changing world.
Why have fungi been overlooked in notions of biodiversity and conservation?
Could greater attention to the fungal networks that bind, filter and aerate soils be the solution to agricultural practices that have brought about our radically depleted landscapes?
How might fungi provide literal and allegorical frameworks for more innovative ways of thinking about the living world?
These themes and more will be explored throughout the seminar and conversation.
