On Craft & Sound with Tracie Morris

Tracie Morris, Poetry, Poetry Talks, Poetry NYC
Date and Time: 
May 13, 2014 - 7:00PM
Event Location: 
Kray Hall

Poet and performer Tracie Morris presents an open seminar on the relationship between sound, onomonpoetics, and imagery, demonstrating that form is a continuum that incorporates both the avant-garde and conventional, rather than something that is “broken” by experimentation, a source rather than a rulebook for the making and presenting of living, resounding poems.

Tracie Morris is Professor of Humanities and Media Studies, and Coordinator of Performance and Performance Studies at Pratt Institute. She is the author of three books of poetry: Rhyme Scheme (2012), Intermission (1998), and Chap-T-Her Won (1993). She is also a performer and a singer, and her sound installations hve been presented at the Whitney Biennial, the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, the New Museum, and the Ronald Feldman Gallery.

Presented as part of the Emerging Poets Fellowship public lecture series, generously funded by the Jerome Foundation.
