The New Canon: Poetry for Social Action
In this class, students will get a flash-course in poetry for social action. We'll read and discuss works by diverse, predominantly BIPOC writers challenging the "canon" and forging the path for other writers speaking to moments that make movements. Then we'll write poems inspired by the readings. Poets may include Lucille Clifton, Haunani Kay-Trask, Patricia Smith, Heid Erdrich, Barbara Reyes, and Ocean Vuong.
