Great talk! I have a question: lots of the ideas you were talking about regarding queer theory in ecology seem tightly linked to the perspectives of the culture or society you are considering. Do you know how queer theory in ecology might interact with perspectives from other cultures, like those you might find in Africa, or Asia, or pastoralist communities versus urban communities etc. ?

That was absolutely fascinating, thank you! I'm always really interested in the interaction of organisms and the different constructions of that organism. I was wondering if you could expand on the concept of constructed conflict and how language and discourse creates conflict? I was struck as well by how much of the 'conflict' amounted to property damage - do you feel that might be related to capitalism's valuing of property above (human and nonhuman) lives?

Angela Davis talks about how the trans communities persistence teaches us that it is possible to effectively challenge the foundation of our sense of normalcy, and how we can apply this to other struggles. In a similar way, do you think that the persistence of animals like coyotes in these urban spaces has something to teach our struggles, and how might we learn from them?
