For the forthcoming special issue of the Journal of Embodied Research on “Ecologies of Embodiment” we invite contributions that explore how the experience of embodiment is embedded within the larger body of the earth. We call for works that weave threads between somatic, audiovisual and textual ways of knowing. We are curious about proposals that document and articulate the shifts of perception unfolding when we relinquish control and attune our human senses to the sentient presence of plants and the many other nonhuman living systems. Contributors are encouraged to engage the inquiry as a process of co-composing with the more-than-human and to reflect on how our relationship with other forms of life can be reconfigured in accountable and collaborative ways.
