Braided Channels Blog


This blog

I intend this blog to be an occasional commentary on a variety of topics related to ecocriticism, bioregionalism, settler-colonial studies, teaching, research projects, nature adventures, travels (including my upcoming year in England), and my editing of Western American Literature. Plus anything else that inspires me to commentary. I adopt the name “braided channels” to reflect these various streams that wander in more or less the same direction, intersecting at times, diverging at others. I have also been doing some research and writing about two literal braided streams, the Platte River in Nebraska and the Channel Country in Australia, so the phrase came immediately to mind when I pondered a title for this blog. The image at the top is a Google Earth glimpse of the Platte River near Grand Island, NE.
