This month’s speakers:

Through “An interactive Dialogue about Love and Site,” Jolie Kaytes & Linda Russo will share examples from their own fieldwork, poetry, teaching and community/collaborative projects, to elaborate on love of place, method, materials, and words. We hope to see you there!

Jolie Kaytes lives in Moscow, Idaho and is an associate professor and program head of landscape architecture across the state border at Washington State University. Her teaching, writing, and images integrate disciplinary perspectives and focus on recognizing the complexity of landscapes. Jolie’s work has appeared in the Fourth River, Terrain.org, Camas and elsewhere. She spent her formative years in South Florida, where she wandered along shorelines, slogged through sloughs, and conducted chaise lounge studies among subtropical flora and fauna. Jolie holds a B.S. in Conservation and Resources Studies from the UC Berkeley and a Bachelors and Masters of Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon.

Linda Russo, M.F.A., Ph.D., is searching for prairie remnants. Her current projects – Wild Edge Walks and EcoArts on the Palouse – connect ecology, creative intelligence and interspecies geography.
