Robert Creeley Lecture in Poetry and Poetics

April 12, 2018, 5:30 PM8:00 PM EDT

This year’s Robert Creeley Lecture in Poetry and Poetics will be given by Lisa Robertson. An important focus of her talk will be 11th-13th century poetries in the Occitan language, in which she will trace an avant avant garde thinking through of literary form as embodied, affective process, linguistic difference and minority/endangered languages and worlds, and the production and circulation of social meaning. This discussion will in turn have bearing on how contemporary poetic movements refuse and elude the reduction of what poetry communicates to the semiotics of global capital.
