“Counter-Desecration brings sustenance and power with terms made in collective remedying.”
–Alison Hedge Coke
On Earth Day, The Poetry Project will host the East Coast launch of Counter-Desecration: A Glossary for Writing Within the Anthropocene, edited by Linda Russo and Marthe Reed and published by Wesleyan University Press. Join editor Linda Russo and contributors Thom Donovan, Marcella Durand, Brenda Iijima, E.J. McAdams, Evelyn Reilly, and Asiya Wadud as they share their terms, repurposed words, and neologisms from the collective glossary that map approaches to the interlinked social, economic, and environmental forces that shape relations between places, individuals, and other species imperiled in the Anthropocene. Event will include contributor readings/performances and a roundtable.
