Event Type

The focus of this reading will be on the poetry of environmental crisis. The six readers all write about climate change, and in particular disappearing coastlines. Our reading will explore history and memory as our poems try to imagine an unimaginable future.  Questions our poems raise include:  what is the meaning of home in the Anthropocene? how does the idea of home change when we are faced with precarity? What work can poetry do in the world to speak out about environmental destruction and ecological grief?
