Disability Poetics Seminar

This Thursday, October 18, an important event in disability literature will be taking place at the University of Pennsylvania: The Disability Poetics Symposium. As befits a university symposium there will be scholarly round tables on the work of Larry Eigner, disability and performance, and disability and experimental poetics. These will include nationally known writers such as Michael Davidson, Jennifer Bartlett, Camisha Jones and Charles Bernstein. There will also be public poetry readings with a heavy nod toward Philadelphia based poets like Dan Simpson, Anne Kaier, Brian Teare and Ona Gritz. It should be a great opportunity for anyone interested in disability poetry to see what the movement is all about. A schedule with specific information can be found at https://newdisabilitypoetics.wordpress.com/2018/09/07/schedule/
