The Emergency of Poetry: Reality & Place in a Placeless World of Global Technology

Wednesday, January 23 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm

This is a past event.

Ide Memorial Commons Room, THH 420

In what ways have contemporary American poets and artists responded to  notions of place challenged by a high-tech era where “place” is often a virtual, undefinable one? How do poets and artists respond to a world where spatial and temporal boundaries are altered? How do artists redefine this sense of reality?

Professor Mark Irwin will discuss several examples from his recent book Monster: Distortion, Abstraction, & Originality in Contemporary American Poetry (2017).

Refreshments will be provided.
