Human|Nature: Sarah Lawrence Magazine



The natural world has always been a place for inspiration, exploration, and adventure. Nature fascinates: it is other, and yet it is us. Now that we live urbane, tech-savvy lives and have the power to irrevocably alter the entire planet, our relationship to nature is more complex—and more vital—than ever. In this issue, we collect stories of alumnae/i in the great outdoors, assembling a picture of humanity’s connection to nature in the modern world.
