Mrill Ingram, CIAS research fellow and research scientist for Michael Fields Agricultural Institute, iwill discuss her book "Loving Orphaned Space: The Art and Science of Belonging to the Earth".How we relate to orphaned space matters. We all are familiar with such spaces, but why do they exist? Ingram maintains that they are created and maintained by our political economy, so that their existence is habitually unquestioned. In her book, Ingram calls us to claim these neglected spaces.
