Panel: Poetics, Poesis, and Professors: Artists Teaching at Public Two-Year Colleges

The Graduate Center (365 Fifth Avenue), Room 9207

Allia Abdullah-Matta, Poet & Associate Professor @ LaGuardia CC
Richard Jeffrey Newman, Poet/Essayist/Translator & Professor @ Nassau CC

Moderator: Sokunthary Svay, Writer & Humanities Alliance Fellow (GC)

These panelists have three things in common: they are all working artists, professors in English, and teach at public two-year colleges. It’s a cause for celebration as well as inquiry. First, how do their practices and forms of expression inform the work they do in the classroom? Who are they as artists and instructors within the context of the humanities and a public community college setting? Featuring poetry and photography, this informal panel promises to be a lively and active discussion.
