"In botany, a rhizome is a term used for the stem of a plant."
Usually found underground, its roots spread out in many directions. With this image in mind, rhizomatic learning suggests that learning is a multi-dimensional process with no defined beginning or end. Similarly, "queer ecology" refers to a perspective which views nature, biology, and sexuality read through the lens of queer theory. Abolishing rigid boundaries between and within species, living and nonliving, and organism and environment. Envisioning a liquid life, a mesh, an opened concatenation of interrelations that blur any separations.
