Bethany's research takes the environmental humanities 'to the field' through investigations of the materialsemiotic vitality of plants, ecologies, and agriculture. She is currently working on a feminist translation of new materialism that is one part critical analysis, one part performance art, and one part gardening project. In her off-time Bethany plays with her pitbull and renovates Airstreams.
