Fred Moten: U-M English Department Zell Visiting Writers Series.:
Reading by this NYC poet, a cultural theorist whose work explores critical social theory, black studies, and performance art. His poems frequently serve as an evocative extension of his scholarly work, allowing multiple influences to engage contemporary social issues in a kind of experimental dialogue, like members of a jazz ensemble. Followed by a Q&A. Also, tomorrow Moten gives a free talk on “The Entanglement of Improvisation and Revision in the Work of Poetic (De)Composition” (10–11 a.m., 3222 Angell Hall). 5:30–6:30 p.m., UMMA Stern Auditorium, 525 S. State. Livestream available for both programs at tinyurl.com/ZellWriters. Free, but capacity limited. firstname.lastname@example.org., . . . . . .
