Ecology and Poetics with Jase Falk
Free, everyone welcome to attend!
Poetry has risen dramatically in popularity in the past decade amidst global political and ecological crises. Can art and poetry provide insight into issues of politics and the Anthropocene? How do poetics and theory relate to one another? In this Theory and Beer, we will be reading a prose poem by poet/critic Juliana Spahr and discussing how very personal expressions in various artforms might offer ways to think through issues of gender, feminism and ecological crisis.
Jase Falk uses poetry as a way to explore the processes of embodiment, trauma and change. Their writing often employs archival sources as a means to engage the historical situatedness of their identity as a non-binary trans person. Jase’s work has been published in The Uniter, BlackFlash Magazine, Public Parking, CV2 and The Qulliad, and they are beginning their Master’s degree in Gender Studies at Queen’s University in fall 2020.
