This woods is an exploration of the sociology of trees, woods and forests. It started in September 2019, in Tocil Woods, a woodland that is connected to, but not part of, the university of Warwick, where I work. I am a human ethnographer in an obviously more-than human place.
Do trees work? Or rather, what work do trees do? And how are they worked on?
How does a sociologist learn about an unfamiliar world? How do I come to name, and to understand, and to feel in woodland?
What does the weather do, and what does seasonal change do?
What traces of other critters do I see, and what work have they done?
