Modern American poetry on the Arts Team Show (Burn FM)

Burn FM - The Guild Media Centre
Monday 27 February 2017 (19:00-20:00)
  • Organisers: Dr Rona Cran (American and Canadian Studies Centre) and Luke Carr (Burn FM)

The American and Canadian Studies Centre and Burn FM are teaming up to showcase some of the most important poetry to emerge from the United States and Canada in the twentieth-century. Through a short talk and a series of readings by staff and students from the American and Canadian Studies Centre and the English Department, we hope to explore the ways in which American poetry repeatedly draws attention to expressive freedoms, to cultural locations, and the socio-political moments from which they emerge, and to discuss their ongoing relevance today.

The poems to be featured include: 

Culture and collections

Schools, institutes and departments

Services and facilities
