Dear friends in clay,

On behalf of my fellow panelists for the Roundtable Discussion at NCECA 2019 (9am on Thursday 28 March, in Auditorium Main), I would like to convey a few suggestions we have compiled for readings that you may find useful as background for the Keynote address, Roundtable Discussion and further conversations you may have with other attendees.  

  1. Shanai Matteson, “What Happened at Central Time Centric?” (
  2. Canuppa Hanska Luger in conversation with Alexandra R. Toland, “The Weapon is Sharing,” in Field to Palette: Dialogues on Soil and Art in the Anthropocene, Alexandra Toland, Jay Stratton Noller and Gerd Wessolek, eds. (CRC Press, 2019)
  3. Tim Ingold, “Ancestry, generation, substance, memory, land,” in The Perception of the Environment: Essays in livelihood, dwelling and skill (Routledge, 2000)

We hope that circulating these ideas through the NCECA 2019 community can help us to have deeper and more nuanced conversations about land, heritage and artistic practice.
