In the United States and Europe in the early twenty-first century, a person of mixed ethnicity finds herself questing inside old European art and ideas. Terrible as these things often are, she enjoys recalibrating them, and she is optimistic. Jennifer Nelson is a postdoctoral fellow at the Michigan Society of Fellows and assistant professor in the Department of the History of Art at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She formerly edited poetry at Epiphany and Washington Square Review. She holds degrees from Yale University, New York University, the Courtauld Institute, and Harvard College. Aim at the Centaur Stealing Your Wife is her first full-length book of poems.
This event is presented by Literati Bookstore.
