Event Location: 
Kray Hall
Admission: 
$10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members

Fred Moten, whose recent collection, The Feel Trio, was a 2014 National Book Award Finalist, explores the ways in which race and poetics--in the wake of colonialism and in the midst of ecological disaster--enter into artistic experimentation, shaping the conditions under which black poets work. Moten’s “partial correspondences” investigate the formal implications of blackness and experimentation, generativity and discovery.

Fred Moten is a poet and scholar whose work explores Black Studies, Performance Studies, and critical theory. He is the author of Arkansas (2000), In the Break: The Aesthetics of the Black Radical Tradition (2003), Hughson's Tavern (2008), B Jenkins (2010), The Feel Trio, The Little Edges (both 2014), and, with Stefano Harney, The Undercommons: Fugitive Planning & Black Study (2013). The Feel Trio was a finalist for the 2014 National Book Award in Poetry. He is a Professor at the University of California, Riverside.
