Center Memories: 2010s

C21 provided me with an intellectual home and community. My fellow fellows (Year of Humanities Futures) have indelibly impressed upon my work.

I took my early morning runs on a route that led me near the shores of the lake. I thought, this is a good place. I felt it an honor to be invited to the Center, and still do. To talk about Debt: Ethics, the Environment, and the Economy, Peter Paik and Merry Wiesner-Hanks brought folks together from different fields who might not have otherwise met. I appreciated the prompt to think hard about debt from my own perspective as a land ethical ecologist, Leopold scholar. I got into new literature and brought ideas together in ways I hadn’t imagined before. This consequence was multiplied at the gathering by others’ fresh perspectives. I remain grateful for the important works and collegial friendships this event birthed. Thank you!
