"What is a Poem?" Symposium Kicks Off Poetry Center

“What Is a Poem?” is the inaugural symposium of the Center for Poetry & Poetics. Is a poem more like a song or a shipping container? What was a poem in the seventeenth century, and what is it in the digital age? Why poetry, anyway? Join our world-class speakers as they explore these and other questions. The symposium will conclude with a conversation with former US Poet Laureate Rita Dove.
