The Poetics of Climate Change: Poetry in the Anthropocene

The term Anthropocene names a geological epoch in which “Man” is the cause of planetary changes, changes that will result in mass extinction, social unrest, and the redrawing of maps due to glacial melt, extreme weather events, sea level rise, and changes in rainfall. Through a discussion of writerly practice from diverse perspectives, our panel explores the poetics of climate change, in particular poetry that engages historically under-represented communities including communities of color, immigrant ​and ​refugee communities, ​indigenous communities, ​and other species.

With Amber Atiya, Demian dinéyazhi’, Claire Hero, Deborah Poe and Marthe Reed
