Fred Moten: Partial Correspondence

Sep 26, 2015 | 3:00 pm

Fred Moten

Fred Moten, whose recent collection, The Feel Trio, was a 2014 National Book Award Finalist, explores the ways in which race and poetics–in the wake of colonialism and in the midst of ecological disaster–enter into artistic experimentation, shaping the conditions under which black poets work. Moten’s “partial correspondences” investigate the formal implications of blackness and experimentation, generativity and discovery.

Fred Moten is a poet and scholar whose work explores Black Studies, Performance Studies, and critical theory. He is the author of Arkansas (2000), In the Break: The Aesthetics of the Black Radical Tradition (2003), Hughson’s Tavern (2008), B Jenkins (2010), The Feel Trio, The Little Edges (both 2014), and, with Stefano Harney, The Undercommons: Fugitive Planning & Black Study (2013). The Feel Trio was a finalist for the 2014 National Book Award in Poetry. He is a Professor at the University of California, Riverside.
