Plant-Human Sociality Symposium
Title: "The Semiotics of Plant-Human Sociality: Phytocommunicability across Disciplines"
Hosted by Dr. Becky Schulthies
Rutgers Inn and Conference Center, Meeting Room B

This Symposium will be held February 24 from 9-5 at the Rutgers Inn and Conference Center, Meeting Room B.
How we might theorize phytocommunicability will be addressed, including various models of knowledge about plant-animal sociality that motivate all kinds of research, consumption, and conservation projects (c.f. Briggs and Hallin 2007). 
This conference will dialogue semiotic and environmental perspectives from anthropology, science communication, and plant sciences with their theoretical syncarps and prop roots in effort to illuminate plant-human communities and their interactions.
