Covert Plants: Vegetal Consciousness and Agency in an Anthropocentric World

Prudence Gibson

Baylee Brits

How can we think, speak, and write about plant life without falling into human-nature dyads, or without tumbling into reductive theoretical notions about the always complex relations between cognition and action, identity and value, subject and object? Covert Plants contributes to newly emerging discourses on the implications of vegetal life for the arts and culture. This stretches to changes in our perception of ‘nature’ and to the adapting roles of botany, evolutionary ecology, and environmental aesthetics in the humanities. Its editors and contributors seek various expressions of vegetal life rather than the mere representation of such, and they proceed from the conviction that a rigorous approach to thinking with and through vegetal life must be interdisciplinary. Prudence Gibson is Post-Doctoral Fellow at University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Baylee Brits is adjunct researcher at University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.
