Black Pastoral: a Reading Group
October 3 @ 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm
Thursdays, 12:30PM – 1:15PM ET
October 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th
Join our Director of Programs, Dante Micheaux (2003) for a weekly gathering to discuss Black Pastoral, winner of the 2022 Cave Canem Prize.
Participants will be invited to answer the question put forth in Professor Sharan Strange’s introduction: “does Black presence challenge and complicate the notion of the pastoral?” The group will examine the text to determine where it sits in the Black poetic tradition as well as on the spectrum of ecopoetics.
