Intermediate Poetry Workshop|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
In this course, we will be guided by contemporary poets who create at the interstices of critical, creative, visual, and performative methodologies. We will study poets who are also performers. Poets who are witches and diviners. Poets that work across the sciences. Poets who are activists. Poets who find inspiration deep in the archives. Poets who are installation artists. And, together, while always keeping language close, we will allow our practice-based enquires to help us curate, complicate, and develop our own interdisciplinary bodies of work. The class will culminate in a series of poetry projects spanning fields.
