Poetry. The gamut of intellectual and imaginative; performative, visual, and poetic experiments and interventions in this volume enact poethical responses as seemingly divergent as decolonizing architecture in a Palestinian refugee camp while rethinking socio-political geometries of the global refugee crisis; Black Dada vis-a-vis Black Lives Matter; misogyny as Feminist Responsibility Project; the art of If; Miles Davis's and another's s'posin; and of course Fall Guys. Edited by Joan Retallack and featuring contributions from Anne Carson, Sandi Hilal, John Keene, Fred Moten, Adam Pendleton, Beverly Semmes, among others, THE SUPPOSIUM is a polyvocal attempt to edge beyond default geometries of attention as we address the state of emergency that has become our space-time on this planet.

Her poetic practice investigates—at times procedurally enacts—intersections of poetics and sociopolitical puzzles.Author City: ANNANDLE-HUDSON, NY USA
