Revolution and/or Poetry

+ Attending
+ RSVP!

Readings by Imad Hassan, Sean Bonney, Francesa Lisette, and Joshua Clover, presented as part of the conference "Poetry and/or Revolution."

Last May, a UK conference on “Militant Poetics” was convened at Birkbeck College. It provoked. “Poetry and/or Revolution” is a response, an attempt to continue the dialogue. It gathers thirteen poets: half East Bay (+1), half UK. It meets in three locations: Santa Cruz, Davis, and Oakland. Each day will have talks. Each evening will have readings which will then transition into late night discussions, we hope. There might be some dancing. But putting the revolutionary potential of socializing aside, “Poetry and/or Revolution”, like “Militant Poetics,” has been inspired by the long relationship between poetry and political antagonism, a relationship that has come under formation again in the last year. We might be unsure of this relationship. Or we might be convinced we know what it is. Either way, we might as well talk about it some more and do it transnationally.
