The two texts in Green Lines stem from Stacey Ho’s ongoing preoccupation with math and plants. “Anti-Invasion Ecologies” troubles colonial and anti-immigrant metaphors used to describe so-called weeds, while the lines of Cantor and Spinoza converge into a conversation about friendship in “How to Draw a Line.” Though these topics may seem incongruous and their approach peripatetic, these texts are connected by a continuous green line, an avenue that calls upon resistance and responsibility as a means to move together.
