David Abram Pre-Conference Workshop and Presentation David Abram is a cultural ecologist and geophilosopher and author of Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology and The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-than-Human World. Hailed as “revolutionary” by the Los Angeles Times, as “daring” and “truly original” by Science, David’s work has helped catalyze the emergence of several new disciplines, including the burgeoning field of ecopsychology. His essays on the cultural causes and consequences of environmental disarray are published in numerous magazines, scholarly journals, and anthologies. He has been the recipient of many awards, including the Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction, and fellowships from Rockefeller and Watson Foundations. In 2014, David holds the honorary Arne Naess Chair in Global Justice and Ecology at the University of Oslo, Norway.

Language, Landscape, and the Ecology of Sensory Experience Workshop

David Abram will present a workshop exploring the forgotten intimacy between language and the landscape. We will first ponder some ecological dimensions of sensory experience — the manner in which perception binds our separate nervous systems into the wider ecosystem. Then, drawing insights from phenomenology, and from several traditional, indigenous cultures, we’ll explore some of the ways in which language — the ways we speak — can either enhance, or inhibit, the ancestral rapport between the human senses and the earthly sensuous. (We’ll also pay heed to the way that specific communication technologies, like the alphabet, have influenced the experienced relation between humans and the more-than-human terrain). Cost – $75 (limited to 10 participants) Pre-Conference Presentation

Climate, Culture, and the Commonwealth of Breath

Tuesday, March 24th // 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm // Alumni Center Banquet Rooms ABCD This presentation is free and open to the public.

Wes Jackson, President of The Land Institute, was born in 1936 on a farm near Topeka, Kansas. After attending Kansas Wesleyan (B.A Biology, 1958), he studied botany (M.A. University of Kansas, 1960) and genetics (Ph.D. North Carolina State University, 1967). He was a professor of biology at Kansas Wesleyan and later established the Environmental Studies department at California State University, Sacramento, where he became a tenured full professor. He resigned that position in 1976 and returned to Kansas to found The Land Institute.

Hill is an associate professor at the University of California at Berkeley, and is currently focused on developing proposals for urban adaptation to climate change in the San Francisco Bay area, by learning from international examples. She co-edited and authored the book Ecology and Design: Frameworks for Learning (Island Press, 2002), and has published numerous book chapters and articles in scientific and professional journals. Hill lectures internationally on ecology and design, and is currently working on a book about urban adaptation to sea level rise and flooding. She has been recognized as a Fellow of the Institute for Urban Design, and as a Fulbright Scholar. Her research and consulting work has been funded by the US National Science Foundation and clients in the US and abroad. Her most recent professional project was the Water Management Strategy for Greater New Orleans, where she advised a team of designers and engineers on water-based site and system design.

Dr. Jackson’s writings include both papers and books. His most recent works, Nature as Measure (2011) and Consulting the Genius of the Place: An Ecological Approach to a New Agriculture (2010), were both published by Counterpoint Press. The Virtues of Ignorance: Complexity, Sustainability, and the Limits of Knowledge (2008) and Rooted in the Land: Essays on Community and Place (1996), were co-edited with William Vitek. Becoming Native to This Place, 1994, sketches his vision for the resettlement of America’s rural communities. New Roots for Agriculture, 1980, outlines the basis for the agricultural research at The Land Institute.

The CELA 2015 keynote panel is sponsored by the CELA Fellows.

Wes Jackson is a recipient of the Pew Conservation Scholars Award (1990), a MacArthur Fellowship (1992), Right Livelihood Award (Stockholm) known as “Alternative Nobel Prize” (2000), and the Louis Bromfield Award (2010). Garden Clubs of America awarded him the Elizabeth Craig Weaver Proctor Medal in 2012. In addition to lecturing nationwide and abroad, Dr. Jackson is involved outside The Land Institute with a variety of projects including being a Post Carbon Institute Fellow.

Bleeding Kansas

Kansas history is a battle ground for the civil rights movement. From the Beecher Bible and Rifle Church to the Brown v. Board of Education historic site this coach tour brings participants in touch with historians and community members with deep knowledge of Kansas Civil Rights history. This tour will link the events of Kansas’ Free State heritage starting with the Abolition Movement through the Civil Rights movement across key sites in northeastern Kansas. Departs Alumni Center at 12:30 pm, returns to K-State campus around 5:00 pm.

Price – $40.00

Led by: Associate Professor La Barbara Wigfall and Associate Professor Lorn Clement. Wigfall's research acknowledges the dynamic role and service cultural landscapes have performed in our nation’s history. Wigfall’s ongoing engagement with Nicodemus, Kansas contributed to the town’s recognition as a national historic site, the only remaining African-American settlement west of the Mississippi established after the Civil War. Clement’s scholarship focuses on design language, including formal and metaphorical ideas of landscape, landscape analysis and visualization. He lives within the Kansas prairie on a farmstead located near signficant Abolitionist history sites.

Cowboy Culture

The Flint Hills of Kansas hold two thirds of the remaining tallgrass prairie on earth. Since the late 1800’s this has been ranch country with cowboys working the pastures and open range. Experience this unique landscape and its Cowboy Culture, past and present, on a 10,000 acre working cattle ranch; listen to stories from an English Professor who is a third-generation Flint Hills Cowboy; and ponder it all over a chuck wagon dinner while surrounded by the beautiful ridges and open pastures of the tallgrass prairie. Departs Alumni Center at 12:30 pm, returns to K-State campus around 7:30 pm.

Price – $60.00

Led by: Professor Tim Keane’s research deals with stream morphology and process, as well as urban stormwater management. Keane is the 2014 recipient of the Cowboy Poetry Governor’s Buckle, making him one of two champions in the statewide cowboy poetry competition.

Visionary Agriculture

Come explore the Land Institute, a living laboratory of people, ideas and prairie landscape which have been brought together to change the face of agriculture. The Land Institute is aiming to develop an agricultural system with the ecological stability of the prairie that can produce grain yield comparable to traditional annual crops. Since 1976 staff have been working to ensure food security by replacing the current extractive and chemically intensive model for agriculture with a sustainable model inspired by nature. Learn more about The Land Institute. Departs Alumni Center at 12:30 pm, returns to K-State campus around 5:00 pm.

Price – $40.00

Led by: Assistant Professor Brent Chamberlain’s research spans a variety of topics, focusing mainly on developing geospatial and geovisualization tools and information to improve environmental landscape planning through more informed knowledge. Chamberlain’s research, teaching and passion converge in sustainable landscape planning.

Tallgrass Ecology

Join us for a guided hike focused on the ecology of the tallgrass prairie, arguably the most endangered ecosystem on the planet. The Konza prairie is an 8600 acre Long Term Ecological Research site owned by the Nature Conservancy and managed by Kansas State University. These upland prairies have never been tilled and this tour will offer a glimpse of the unique ecological relationships of the tallgrass prairie and the research that is being conducted to further our understanding of place. Departs Alumni Center at 12:30 pm, returns to K-State campus before 5:00 pm.

Price – $20.00

Led by: Konza Prairie Biological Station Docents are trained to interpret the geology, vegetation, fauna, and cultural history of the prairie.

WALKING TOURS Greening Campus

K-State’s landscape architecture faculty and students are engaged in research and creative activities on campus. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore projects led by our program’s faculty including green roofs, a rain garden, campus creek and the Meadow. Departs Alumni Center at 1:00 pm and will end around 4:00 pm.

Price – $10.00

Led by: Associate Professor Lee Skabelund leads community service-learning projects focused upon the construction of sustainable stormwater management demonstration sites. Manhattan, Kansas is home to many of Skabelund’s design-build projects including sites at the Sunset Zoo and K-State campus. Skabelund’s current research focuses upon the monitoring of green roofs planted with native species.

SPONSORS PRAIRIE STUDIES initiative Description

The Prairie Studies Initiative is a collaborative venture of K-State faculty, staff, and students to explore the cultural and ecological dimensions of the prairie, challenges to sustaining grassland ecosystems, and envisioning new futures for these unique and important landscapes. The initiative explores themes of wilderness, managed landscapes, human culture, and creativity.


The Prairie Studies Initiative aims to strengthen dialogue and inspire creative scholarship among those engaged in understanding the natural ecosystems, history, culture, and livelihoods of the prairie, and to employ the arts to make this research meaningful to a wide public.


The Initiative organizes both professional and public events that pair leaders in the arts with leaders in natural, physical, technical, and social sciences, and the humanities to stimulate communication and creative research among scholars. Broadly, the Initiative fosters both new research projects and greater understanding on the part of the public of complex issues central to the health of the prairie.


The Prairie Studies Initiative aspires to catalyze diverse modes of inquiry and cross-disciplinary perspectives in placebased research by faculty, staff, and students at K-State. Through actively engaging the arts with science, the Initiative aims to reveal both shared modes of inquiry and the value of the differences that shape these perspectives.
