Dr. Lauren Gwin holds a PhD in Comparative Literature and English Language & Literature from the University of Michigan, where she currently teaches. Her research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of the more-than-human world and ways of knowing traditionally undervalued in academic institutions. She learns by reading, keeping bees, wandering in the woods with children, and in conversation with friends and colleagues.

Eva Roos works as a Landscape Designer for Saiki Design in Madison, Wisconsin. She received her Master of Landscape Architecture and Master of Science in Conservation Ecology degrees from the University of Michigan. She is committed to the study and application of landscape decolonization and honoring Indigenous epistemologies embedded in the physical world. She appreciates all expressions which expand relationships to “place”, whether this be through literature, knowing Great Lakes ecosystems, landscape design, or gardening. She aims to learn alongside students to connect seemingly separate disciplines, and to investigate worldviews which are so ubiquitous that they often go unseen and unquestioned.
