New essays on our resilient future by Jeanine M. Canty and Kyle T. Mays

Dear Reader,

In June, we launched our new series, “How do we come together in a changing world?” This Questions for a Resilient Future series is curated by Editorial Fellows Kailea Loften and Kate Weiner of Loam.

Below you’ll find the latest essays in the series, including “Ambiguous, Unusual Couplings” by Jeanine M. Canty and “Kinship as Solidarity and Accountability” by Kyle T. Mays.

Jeanine M. Canty, PhD, is a professor of transformative studies at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). A lover of nature, justice, and contemplative practice, her teaching intersects issues of social and ecological justice, ecopsychology, and the process of worldview expansion and change.

Kyle T. Mays is an Afro-Indigenous (Saginaw Chippewa) writer and scholar of US history, urban studies, race relations, and contemporary popular culture. He is an Associate Professor of African American Studies, American Indian Studies, and History at the University of California, Los Angeles.

In the coming weeks, we’ll return as new contributors Lauren Hage and Sam Edmondson offer their perspectives on this question.

This publication was produced with generous funding support from our partners at the Kalliopeia Foundation.

Much love,
Center for Humans and Nature
