PennSound Podcast: New Writing Through the Anthropocene

I recently appeared on an ecopoetry-focused episode of the PennSound Podcast Series, alongside Julia Bloch, Director of the Creative Writing Program; visiting poets Allison Cobb and Brian Teare; and fellow PhD student Knar Gavin. The episode, “New Writing Through the Anthropocene,” is available on the Jacket2 blog.

For a recording of Cobb and Teare’s reading at the Kelly Writers House the same night, see this KWH-TV video

Curations for The Pulter Project

My curations for Hester Pulter’s poem “Universal Dissolution” are now available on the Pulter Project website. These short essays bring together secondary materials that offer useful context for Pulter’s poetry, from sea monsters and unicorns to early modern celestial cartography.

The Pulter Project is a wonderful initiative to bring wider recognition to a deserving seventeenth-century poet, and is well worth a close look.
