Writing on Rim: Poetry’s Alterity

Joan Retallack

Naropa University’s Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics presents the inaugural Leslie Scalapino Lecture in Innovative Poetics with Joan Retallack: an annual lecture series with a focus on critical analysis of innovative poetry, essays, plays, and cross-genre work primarily by women poets. The series invites contemporary writers to present their work in the spirit exemplified by Scalapino’s own critical writing and editorial vision as publisher of O Books, made possible by the generous support of Tom White: lecture given in spring 2012.
