Notes from the Charnel Ground—Bhanu Kapil on the Craft of Poetry

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Tuesday


How can poetic practice, research, and design be approached through a model of pilgrimage that begins at the charnel ground: the place where the bones, blood, and skin are shed but also freeze/burn (forever)?

Bhanu Kapil lives in Colorado where she teaches at Naropa University. She also teaches in Goddard College’s low-residency MFA. She is the author of a number of full-length works of poetry/prose, including The Vertical Interrogation of Strangers (Kelsey Street Press, 2001), Incubation: a space for monsters (Leon Works, 2006), humanimal [a project for future children] (Kelsey Street Press, 2009), Schizophrene (Nightboat, 2011), and Ban en Banlieue (Nightboat, 2015).
