About this event

This event is part of the speaker series "black poesis/radical composition" that will examine literary experiments in prose and poetics by contemporary poets, critics and artists. The explorations in poetics, sonic production, visual culture, critical thought, textual assemblage, auto-theory and artmaking articulate the possibilities of living and making inside the racialized enclosure and advance a set of radical propositions regarding the deformation and reformation of prose, narrative, poetic and visual practice.

Each reading will be followed by a small academic seminar with the speaker led by Professor Saidiya Hartman. Seminars are restricted capacity, and will be held on the 7th floor of Schermerhorn Extension. You may RSVPs for the seminar(s) of your choosing at the same time as you RSVP for the reading.

More information including the series schedule and registration are on the Eventbrite page
