Poetics/Ethics: New Work by Queer Poets IV

This is the fourth of four readings that will showcase contemporary queer poets, based on the notion that ethics should be conceived as encompassing not just academic research but also literary writing. Each of these poets crafts new languages to describe and confront the interplay of lived experience and political critique. By bringing them together, we hope not only to foster a conversation between the authors of some of the most exciting poetry being written today, but also some of the most complex and subtle thinking about gender and sexuality and their intersections with race, class, migration and other positions.
