We aew sharing this via  EXTINCTIONSTUDIES@jiscmail.ac.uk

“Hello Extinction Studies List,

We’re excited to announce that DARK MATTER ISSUE #9 : “Grave Affliction and Possibility” is now live.


This issue is a collection of responses to Deena Metzger’s essay “Extinction Illness: Grave Affliction and Possibility,” which appeared in Tikkun in January. The premise of Metzger’s essay is that as the reality of human-caused mass extinction sinks in, we are all succumbing to what she calls “extinction illness.”  Responses came in many forms: letter, formal essay, poetry, fiction, artwork—even a sermon. They are, as you’ll see,  passionate, visionary, wildly divergent—and even uplifting. We think you’ll agree it’s an extraordinary collection.

Please share with your networks. Thanks!

Lise Weil, Editor”
