Becoming Fungal Humans and Mushrooms at the 2018 Radical Mycology Convergence

Main Article Content

Oliver Hillenkamp


Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork and the work of Joanna Steinhardt, this paper explores the relationship between fungi and humans in the DIY mycology movement. While taking seriously the transformative potential of interspecies engagement, Hillenkamp analyses the community of the 2018 Radical Mycology Convergence with an eye towards forms of mutual relationality. Resisting oversimplified readings of anthropomorphism as unidirectional projection, the paper argues for the equal metamorphic potential of a ``"mycomorphism."
