What do research and documentation look like for poets? How, as poets, can we use research and documentation to not only improve as writers but also to be more conscientious artists and citizens? Drawing from artists and writers like Adrian Piper, Audre Lorde, Ronaldo Wilson, Charles Reznikoff, Layli Long Soldier and many others, we will each develop a toolkit of poetic research and archival methods. Most poems already do a certain amount of “internal research” as they inquire into the emotional worlds of their speakers. This workshop will focus on complicating what emotional research looks like, and we will try to open up other avenues—social, cultural, digital—for poetic inquiry.

Anaïs Duplan is the author of the full-length poetry collection Take This Stallion (Brooklyn Arts Press, 2016) and the chapbook Mount Carmel and the Blood of Parnassus (Monster House Press, 2017). Their poems and essays have appeared on PBS News Hour and in Hyperallergic, the Academy of American Poets, Poetry Society of America, Fence, Boston Review, The Journal, and in other publications. Duplan is also an artist and curator who has facilitated exhibitions at the Distillery Gallery, Elastic Arts, Disjecta, the Radical Abacus, Public Space One, and at Mengi in Reykjavík, Iceland. Their visual works have appeared or are forthcoming in group exhibitions at Flux Factory, Thomas Robertello Gallery, Daata Editions, the 13th Baltic Triennial in Lithuania, and the Institute of Contemporary Art in LA. Anaïs is the founder of the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, an artist residency program for artists of color in Iowa City and is the joint Public Programs Fellow at the Museum of Modern Art and the Studio Museum in Harlem.
