The Elegy: Poetics of Protest and Collective Grief with Kamilah Aisha Moon

How do poets and other artists begin to articulate loss, outrage and grief on a grand scale, distilling universal connections that transcend customs and belief systems? This class is an overview of poetry that responds to public tragedy: we will discuss approaches, ethical considerations and craft choices poets make when responding to various kinds of events (acts of war, gun violence, police brutality, natural disaster, etc.) through art.

Queering Form with Rickey Laurentiis

Since at least the mid-1990s, "queer" has emerged as a socio-political and theoretical framework set in opposition to the normative, "stable" or strictly binary. In 2016, then, what might it mean to write a poetics queerly, to insist upon a queer reading of a text or, indeed, to queer a form? In this workshop, these questions and more will be rigorously explored. We'll sharpen our critical skills through very close readings of a selection of published poems and essays, as well as the work of workshop participants.
