Penn Lightbulb Café - Songs of Dissent: Poetry and Antiracist Solidarity
Expert faculty from Penn Arts & Sciences shed light on their research at the virtual Penn Lightbulb Cafés. Join us for an afternoon engaging, stimulating conversation, with a Q&A session following the talk.
Poetry is personal and public, political and social. Talking about American poetry—from radical Modernism and the activist-led Black Arts Movement to contemporary poets who respond to war, immigration, racism, and navigating complex identities—requires a discussion of political and ideological movements.
In this Lightbulb Café event, Josephine Nock-Hee Park, Professor of English and Director of the Asian American Studies Program, is in conversation with Herman Beavers, Julie Beren Platt and Marc E. Platt President’s Distinguished Professor of English and Africana Studies, about teaching poetry and finding antiracist solidarity in poetic movements of the past and present.
