A panel and reading in honor of poet and Fordham faculty member Bruce Andrews, a leading figure in avant-garde writing and performance since the 1970s. The author of over thirty volumes of poetry, Andrews has taught political science at Fordham since 1975. As co-founder of the ground-breaking journal L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, Andrews was among a small group of writers who instigated what is arguably the biggest shift in American poetry in the last generation. First, a panel of prominent scholars will present papers on Andrews’ work, moderated by poet-critic Charles Bernstein. After a brief break and reception, Andrews will read from his work.
