Born in Chillicothe, Ohio, poet and scholar Juliana Spahr earned a BA in languages and literature from Bard College and a PhD in English from SUNY Buffalo. Her interests revolve around questions of transformation, language, and ecology. Concerned with politics without being overtly political, Spahr’s work crosses a variety of American landscapes, from the disappearing beaches of Hawaii to the small town of her Appalachian childhood. Her books of criticism and theory include Du Bois’s Telegram: Literary Resistance and State Containment (2018) and Everybody’s Autonomy: Connective Reading and Collective Identity (2001).
This event is made possible with support from Utah Humanities and Weber Book Links.
