Abstract

Speaker: Dr Mary Ann Lund

In this talk, Dr Mary Ann Lund will discuss her public outreach project ‘Poetry and Presence’, which explores meditative practices of reading poetry in communal settings. It is interested in the relationship between poetry, place, contemplation, and silence.

The talk will both report on these activities and describe some of the models for a project that has been collaborative, exploratory, and sometimes experimental in its approach. It will also discuss some of the possibilities for research and teaching that have developed as unforeseen but happy by-products of this project.
