Open Lecture | Writing in-between languages: poetry in a second language

Honors DeRoy Professor Carmen Bugan

Carmen Bugan Carmen Bugan
When the native language becomes unstable, and writers are forced to abandon it, or when experience simply destroys the transaction of meaning or truth between a writer and her language, the notion of the “place of writing” itself becomes destabilized and abstracted. This lecture probes the poet's relationship with an adopted language, acknowledging losses and gains, and offers a glimpse into the experience of writing in-between languages, hovering at the borders between them.
