ONE MAKES MANY: A CONFERENCE OF POETIC INTERACTIONS
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11 (DUKE) & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12 (UNC)
"One Makes Many: A Conference of Poetic Interactions" brings together local, national, and international scholars and poets to participate in panels, readings, exhibitions, and events. Each of our panels orients itself along one or more disciplinary boundaries and aims to interrogate poetry’s relation to visual art, technology, history, folk tradition, religion—to name just a few. We are enthusiastic about the multidisciplinary nature of the conference, which draws interest and participation from multiple departments across both campuses.
