Arts and Science
A New Index for Predicting Catastrophes
“In Madhur Anand’s poems the ancient false dichotomy between art and science collapses, and does so with such grace, wit, and élan you’d think this had been its purpose all along. These poems are alive with the potency of their own hybrid attentions – rapt, nimble, and capable of unlocking the energies asleep in eco-scientific jargon as well as popular culture and the poet’s Indian heritage. Here is a writing full of linguistic and conceptual verve, essential reading for all of us interested in poetry and the ecological arts.”
--Don McKay, Griffin Poetry Prize–winning author of Strike/Slip
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self- organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*

In this highly timely and one-of-a-kind collection, Madhur Anand and Adam Dickinson have brought together a who’s who of contemporary Canadian ecological poets from across the country and across the spectrum of form—from traditional to experimental—who are united in their attention to our relationship with the environment, and to re-imagining that relationship.
