Rickey Laurentiis—Scratching through the Dark: Rough Thinking on Race in Poetry and Art

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

/ Tuesday

2:00pm—3:00pm Add to calendar

Filed under:

So often public and media discourse eagerly invites us to "begin a national conversation" on race, to effectively "start from scratch," with some far-off aim toward reconciliation and mutual understanding. Noble goals, perhaps, though they dismiss the groundwork of conversations and debates already well established across the various disciplines of academia and art. But what happens if, instead of "starting from scratch," we instead "scratch up" the record, queerly re-reading or revising it? These and further questions will be raised through guided meditations on the work of Kara Walker, Bernadette Meyer, Wallace Stevens, Douglas Kearney, and more.
