Poetry as Pluriverse: Rethinking Language Justice – A Reading

Sep 22, 2017 | 6:30 pm

Mohammed Bennis

A Reading with Mohammed Bennis, Bei Dao, Sharmistha Mohanty, Daouda Ndiaye, Nabaneeta Dev Sen, Anne Waldman, Orlando White, Zhai Yongming and Raúl Zurita.

Organized by Columbia University professors Lydia Liu and Anupama Rao, this symposium gathers international poets, translators, and scholars for discussions about the ways that poetry—language that arises from the lived experience of song and ritual incantation—binds us to the rich traditions embodied by the plurality of poetic speech around the world. Join us for two public programs featuring a diverse group of poets from around the world.

Funded in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Co-presented with Columbia University.

Admission Free and Open to the Public Location Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America, Columbia University, 1161 Amsterdam Ave New York NY Sponsored By Poets House and Columbia University
