BISR Public Conversations: Uses of Poetry

How and why do forms of experimental and hybrid writing speak to our current cultural moment—a moment riven with anxieties about politics, power, and identity? Please join us for a public conversation between Brooklyn Institute faculty member and poet Rebecca Ariel Porte and Maureen McLane, author of My Poets and the poetry collections Same Life, World Enough, and This Blue.
