ECO SOMATIC POETRY AND PERFORMANCE: In this class we will read and write poems that have absorbed the rhythm, structure, and energy of language as it has been passed through many poetic bodies, from texts to performance art, through time and space. The class is centered around the grounding principle that poetry is a discursive art; meaning, that the poem coming through your body is absorbed from the ecosystem that surrounds you and is changing all the time, as well as language and forms that have been passed through lineage, tradition, ritual, and community. Tyehimba Jess, Akilah Oliver, Anne Waldman, Petra Kuppers, and Joy Harjo will be among the poets who will lead us on this journey.

Must be enrolled in one of the following Classifications: Junior, Fifth Year, or Senior. Pre-req of LLSW 3520 Intermediate Poetry minimum grade of C. After the first week of the semester, permission of the instructor will be required in order to register for this course.
