Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

Resurrect Extinct Vibration is a (Soma)tic poetry ritual using audio field recordings of recently extinct animals, momentarily returning the music of the disappeared back into the air, the body, the land. We will focus on an Ecopoetics beyond our degraded soil, air, and water, considering the idea of vibrational absence. We will also be expanding the notion of a book of poems to incorporate other elements such as cataloging, journaling, law suits, congressional pleas, grave markers, and other forms of writing to enhance the collection of poems.

The Inaugural Year: Martin Goldray Lecture—Dewey and the Experience of Classical Music

Performing Arts Center Reisinger Auditorium

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

1:30pm-3:00pm

A lecture to be given by music faculty member Martin Goldray. John Dewey's book, Art as Experience (1934), shows how art fits into his pragmatist philosophy, but it's a rather bewildering, if sometimes inspiring, account of art without more background into his thinking than he provides. This lecture will address the relationship of art to pragmatism more generally, explore how performing and listening to classical music might be illuminated by this way of thinking, and show how his ideas about art have resonated in the art world since his death in 1952.

Ada Limón Craft Talk—On Duende & the Ladder: Mystery and Hope in Poetry

Library Meeting Room aka Pillow Room

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

6:00pm-7:00pm

Lorca defined Duende as having four distinct elements: irrationality, earthiness, a close awareness of death, and the diabolical. In this craft lecture, we'll look at ways contemporary poetry can balance the elements of Duende while still conveying a sense of hope to the reader. By exploring poems that deftly balance both the dark and the light, we'll also be paying close attention to how the bones of poetry—line, syntax, and music—set the foundation for a new way of making sense of the world.

Linda Gregerson Craft of Poetry—The Second Person

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

2:00pm-3:00pm

Surely the most interesting person in the poem is the second person. The first person has received the great preponderance of our attention: Who is the lyric speaker? Ought we even to speak of a lyric “I”? If we are wrong to speak of a lyric I, what dynamics have led us into this error? Etc. But the “you,” implicit or named, constructed as a cipher or lavishly characterized, has received much less attention. What does it mean to address a you directly in a poem? Where does that leave the rest of the poem’s readers? What sort of vocabulary ought we to use when thinking about a layered set of auditors, some of whom hold privileged status? What difference does it make if we imagine the second person to be actual? To be fictional? How much of the poem is about its ostensible subject and how much of it is about the power dynamic between the I and the you? In this craft talk, we'll explore these questions and others using the examples of specific lyric poems, some of them canonical and some of them quite recent, and we'll have time for discussion afterward.
