Expanded Writing: A Postscript Symposium
10 AM
Free and open to the public | Register here
How have contemporary technologies transformed the art and practice of poetry, and the nature of innovative conceptual writing? What new networks of scholarly, creative, and critical writing have emerged outside the traditional boundaries of the printed page? What histories of linguistic experimentation across media have inspired these new conceptual horizons, with their abiding technologies, platforms, and media infrastructures?

"Expanded Writing: A Postscript Symposium" assembles a small group of leading scholars, artists, and poets whose work dovetails with the questions raised by the Broad Art Museum’s current Postscript exhibition and its organizing rubrics (“Transcription,” “Translation,” “Redaction,” “Appropriation,” and “Constraint”). This one-day symposium takes the title of the exhibition at its word: to think of what writing is after writing, of what comes post-script. Visit cal.msu.edu/postscript for more information and to register.
