Studio in African American Poetry and Poetics is a course in interdisciplinary making, as we investigate the evolving fields of African American poetry and poetics through a critical and a creative lens. In this class, we will think and work across genres (poetry, prose), mediums (page, canvas, digital, film, or theatrical space), and disciplines (writing, literary criticism, visual arts, drama choreography, history, etc.), and collapse the walls between presenter and audience, creator and critic, as we work individually and collaboratively toward new modes of making. Intended for graduate students and advanced undergraduates, this course will also provide students with hands-on opportunities to work on events, archival projects, and community outreach, and consider these activities from both theoretical and practical perspectives.
