"Poetry, Place, Displacement" Symposium Gathers Distinguished Poets and Scholars

April 17, 2020

Please join us Friday, April 17, for "Poetry, Place, Displacement," a symposium hosted by the Center for Poetry & Poetics. The event will bring together several renowned poets, scholars, and poet-scholars to discuss such questions as: How do poems represent place and displacement? How do they differ from other ways of mapping place? How do they attest to histories of human and environmental dislocation? Following an afternoon of panel presentations and interactive dialogue, the symposium will conclude with a reading and reflections by the Jamaican poet Kei Miller, who won the prestigious Forward Prize for the best poetry collection of 2014.
