Visions & Voices: Cartography of Poets Workshop

September 17, 2020
LVL 301 - Ahmanson Lab

The USC Libraries are home to archives of California poets who have influenced the poetry of literary artists around the globe working in many traditions. Some take inspiration from California’s geology and geography, some from its diversity of communities, others from the interplay of formal poetic structures and experimental techniques orchestrated by California poets. All embody an aspect of California-ness that is present in the archives.

Participants will use the digital- and physical-making technology of the Ahmanson Lab and the USC Libraries’ archival collections to explore the poetic landscape of California and the West.

This experience will complement the “Cartography of Poets: Maps, Archives, and Locating the Poetic” event that follows.
