Summer Seminar: Remix the Poem

This course is designed to encourage risk-taking and experimentation. Students will focus heavily on writing, experimenting, and reading (from selected texts). Rather than looking closely at formal poetic conventions, students will explore writing that transgresses those boundaries and defies classifications. By using an array of techniques, including the cut-up method of William Burroughs, appropriative collage, erasure, and chance operations, students will be encouraged to think about and experiment with ways of engaging critically with their own work, that of others, and the larger literary community.
