Jan. 18 Ann Tsing: “Critical Description After Progress”

Professor Tsing’s current research tracks the commerce and ecology of a high-value wild mushroom to illuminate contemporary dilemmas of capitalism and multispecies life. Her in-progress Living in Ruins explores the consequences of building capitalist supply chains among cultural and biological histories of disturbance and precarious survival.

Anna Tsing is a Professor of Anthropology at UCSC.
