(Soma)tic poetry rituals are a way of creating an extreme present to keep the hold the poet in place as they write. These rituals reveal the creative viability of everything around us and can be enacted every day and anywhere.

CAConrad will discuss the origin of this praxis and a few of the current rituals, especially “Resurrect Extinct Vibration” where he has been lying on the ground across America to listen to field recordings of recently extinct animals.

CAConrad’s childhood included selling cut flowers along the highway for his mother and helping her shoplift. He is the author of eight books of poetry and essays, the latest ECODEVIANCE: (Soma)tics for the Future Wilderness (Wave Books) is the winner of the 2015 Believer Magazine Book Award. He is a 2015 Headlands Art Fellow, and has also received fellowships from Lannan Foundation, MacDowell Colony, Banff, Ucross, RADAR, and the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage; he conducts workshops on (Soma)tic Poetry and Ecopoetics.

Tiphanie Yanique—Girls: Writing the Girl and Young Woman

Slonim Living Room

/ Wednesday

6:00pm—7:00pm Add to calendar

Filed under:

In this craft course we will focus on writers who have crafted the female child as character. We will ask questions like: Do girls have adventure? Do girls have subjectivity? Do girls have agency? Are girls fundamentally different from boys, from grown up women? If so, under what circumstances? And if not, what are the barriers in place to prevent this? How does literature answer these questions? We will examine our own narratives to see how we might participate in the existing traditions or how we might push against them. We will challenge the existing literature and question the literature that we are currently creating.

Tiphanie Yanique is the author of the novel, Land of Love and Drowning, which won the 2014 Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Award from the Center for Fiction. the Phillis Wheatley Award for Pan-African Literature, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters Rosenthal Family Foundation Award, and was listed by NPR as one of the Best Book of 2014. Land of Love and Drowning was also a finalist for the Orion Award in Environmental Literature and the Hurston-Wright Legacy Award. She is also the author of a collection of stories, How to Escape from a Leper Colony, which won her a listing as one of the National Book Foundation's 5Under35. BookPage listed Tiphanie as one of the 14 Women to watch out for in 2014. Her writing has also won the 2011 Bocas Award for Caribbean Fiction, Boston Review Prize in Fiction, a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers Award, a Pushcart Prize, a Fulbright Scholarship and an Academy of American Poet's Prize. Tiphanie is a professor in the MFA program at the New School in New York City, where she is the 2015 recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award.

Black History Month: The Art of Teaching Film Series—Chapter and Verse

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

/ Thursday

5:30pm—9:00pm Add to calendar

In this film, S. Lance Ingram, a reformed gang leader who is released after 10 years in prison, struggles to adapt to a changed Harlem. Unable to use the technological skills he acquired in jail, Lance is forced to accept a position delivering meals for a local food bank. It is here that he befriends Ms. Maddy, 75, a woman with an irreverent and hardened shell to whom he delivers dinners. Through her, Lance finds hope, relearning the joys of life and living despite the outwardly bedeviled society in which they find themselves.

Jamal Joseph, the director of Chapter and Verse, will answer questions after the film and sign copies of his book, Panther Baby, at the post-event reception.
