Birdsong and the Dawn Chorus in Natural History and the Arts

Stevie contributes to a new book publication from Cornerhouse Publications exploring how the arts can represent bird song in general and the dawn chorus in particular through ways that underline each chorus’ specific nature of space and place, whilst avoiding the trap of projecting human phenomena onto the more-than-human world.  BUY
