Close Readings in a Virtual Space: Bhanu Kapil

This free, participatory event (taking place via Zoom) features Bhanu Kapil, one of our favorite poets, leading an intimate, virtual group reading-through/thinking through of The Spring Flowers Own: “The morning after / my death” by Etal Adnan. Neither explicitly teaching nor explaining, our special guest poet will serve as your expert tour-guide to explore this featured poem as a group.

Whether already well-versed in the “close reading” of poems or having never been quite sure you’ve been “getting it,” CLOSE READINGS IN A VIRTUAL SPACE provides a digital gathering for taking a refreshing deep dive into poetry.

Actively participate or simply listen and learn!

The event will last about an hour and conclude with a brief reading of poetry by our special guest poet.

 

Bhanu Kapil, FRSL is a poet and the author of several full-length collections, most recently How To Wash A Heart (Liverpool University Press), which won the TS Eliot Prize and was a Poetry Book Society selection. Incubation: a space for monsters, a prose/hybrid work, will be published by Kelsey Street Press in Fall 2022, with new writing on performance and an accompanying essay by Eunsong Kim. An Extraordinary Fellow of Churchill College (University of Cambridge), Kapil was elected in 2022 as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Other honors include a Windham-Campbell Prize from Yale University, and a Cholmondeley Award from the Society of Authors (UK). Kapil taught for twenty years at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, and also maintained a private bodywork practice. Her body of work spans creative writing, performance, elder care, massage therapy, anti-colonial research, and teaching. At the University of Vermont, she has contributed to the Master’s in Leadership for Sustainability as an affiliate, co-teaching modules with Sayra Pinto and Elena Georgiou. Since 2019, she has contributed to the development and piloting of a low-residency, practice-based PhD that focuses on leadership, creativity, and systems change.
