Guy Lancaster holds a Ph.D. in Heritage Studies from Arkansas State University and has published widely on the subject of racial violence and localism. He works in the central Arkansas region and also gardens, studies the Swedish language, and makes and plays bamboo didgeridoos.
Tree of Talking concerns itself with a little bit of everything: living life locally, social justice, violence both individual and collective, books worth reading, critiques of the American National Security state, food, secular humanism and religion, evil, human rights, history, environmentalism, and more. The only commonality among all these subjects is that they will here be viewed through the lens of how Rebecca West, in The Meaning of Treason, defined the unforgivable sin: “It is perhaps to deal with people as if they were things: to pick them up and set them down, without respect for their uniqueness, for their own wills.”
