Our fifth curated collection focuses on two expressions of the outdoors that we understand as co-constitutive: Conservation and Belonging. The outdoors is for everybody and we all have a stake in the ecological integrity of the natural world. We’re going to need each other in the work that lies ahead. The works assembled here articulate different relationships between us and what we think of when we think of the outdoors. Together, this collection represents the committed, contemplative, and joyful space in which we are engaged in the outdoors, somewhere between being and becoming.

This collection wouldn’t be possible without the wonderful work of our editor for the semester, Hailey Pike.
