Poetry reading series – Susan Briante
February 16 @ 7:00 pm-8:00 pm
Have you ever read poetry that uses fieldwork and archives to deal with important social and political concerns? Come hear three acclaimed poets who employ research and reporting to grapple with such timely issues as immigration, identity, cultural appropriation, racism and the military- and prison-industrial complexes. Their works intersect with the social sciences, drawing on anthropology, sociology, history, media studies, education, psychology, political science and law.
- Thursday, Feb. 16, Susan Briante
- Tuesday, Feb. 28, Nomi Stone
- Thursday, March 30, Paisley Rekdal
All readings are free and open to the public.
The series is sponsored by the Department of English and Creative Writing at The University of Tulsa, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities and the Tulsa Artist Fellowship.
