Kinship Book Series

A kindred spirit to our online art gallery, Kinship: Belonging in a World of Relations is a lively series that explores our interconnections with the living world. The five volumes—Planet, Place, Partners, Persons, Practice—offer essays, interviews, poetry, and stories of solidarity highlighting the interdependence between humans and nonhuman beings. 

More than 70 contributors—including Robin Wall Kimmerer, Richard Powers, Sharon Blackie, David Abram, and J. Drew Lanham—render possibilities for becoming better kin and invite us into the ways we can deepen our care and respect for the whole community of life.

Kinship and Beyond

We gather thoughtful and inspiring ideas across perspectives about our kinship, belonging, and responsibilities with nature. Learn more about the Kinship Book Series, podcast, events, and other Center for Humans and Nature publications.
