Circling the Wolf: What Kaleidoscopic Thinking Can Teach Us About Interconnection

Erica Berry began studying wolf repopulation because of its impact on her own family in the American west, which included a sheep farmer, hunters, and environmentalists. What began as an academic Environmental Studies project soon turned into a decade of obsession, where she researched stories about wolves both real and symbolic from around the world, leading to her nonfiction debut, Wolfish: Wolf, Self, and the Stories We Tell About Fear (Flatiron/Macmillan, 2023). Weaving science, history, journalism, folklore, anthropology, and personal writing, Wolfish is a genre-crossing book that explores not only the biological wolf, but the very human emotions (fear, freedom, ferocity) that Berry grew up associating the animal with. In this keynote, which includes a short reading, she will talk about how and why she took this kaleidoscopic approach, making a case for what thinking omnivorously—porously moving between disciplines, and between self and subject—can teach us about environmental interconnectedness.
