The Arts Research Center will celebrate the 2021 Fall Poetry Fellows with a reading of work created during their fellowship semester. This event will feature undergrad fellows Anastasia Le and Gisselle Medina; graduate fellows Lindsay Choi and Vincente Perez; faculty fellows Ahmad Diab and Jesse Nathan; and community fellows Maurya Kerr and D’mani Thomas, and be followed by a short conversation and Q&A with Chiyuma Elliott.

During fall 2021, these amazing poetry fellows will explore and push against the theme coexistence.  The word coexistence has a spatial component, and implies the sharing of space or cohabitation within overlapping territories; it also has a temporal dimension, suggesting simultaneous presence with others in the same moment in time. These fellows engage capaciously with issues of mutuality, synchronicity, interdependence, and care – from enlivening exchanges between beings, to the porous line between animate and inanimate, to the challenges of living together on our planet, to the uncanny shivers of coincidence.
