Presenter: Michele Saracino
This presentation suggests that we imagine all of our interpersonal relationships—our personal and public ones—as wild, meaning unknown and undomesticated. Dr. Saracino’s hope is that if we enact the same attention, improvisation, and letting go as strategies in our interpersonal relationships as we do when we are in nature, then perhaps we can create deeper, more empathetic bonds with all the creatures in our midst, human and non-human.
