This lecture is presented to you by Environmental Humanities LU

'Layers of different seaweeds tangle and untangle in the current. They are neither liquid nor solid. Rippling they break through the sea’s surface, reticent, but at the same time lascivious in their twists and turns'.

On Wednesday 26 April from 15.00-17.00, Miek Zwamborn will share some of the encounters from her anthology, The Seaweed Collector's Handbook, where she swirls, drifts and dives between poems, works of art and design, historical facts, biographical fragments, recipes and scientific research.
