About the event

About the Talk:

What does it mean to understand myths as the “fruiting body mushrooms” of underground mycelial mythic systems? Just as fungi taught plants how to root into the soil, so do myths teach us how to root into our ecological and social ecosystems. Mycorrhizal fungi map the relationships in a forest just as myths map the specific relationships of a community rooted in place. Tracking the vegetal gods of the Mediterranean as a case study, Sophie Strand will lead a discusssion and track modern advances in biology, mycology, and forest ecology to resurrect the forgotten root-system of earth-reverent mythologies suppressed by current paradigms of domination.
