International Writing Program Panel Discussion: On the Body
October 13 @ 12:00 pm
A person’s body affects the way they navigate the world, and their experiences in it. How much power does a body (with regard to, for instance, race, gender, sexuality, physical ability) have over, or in, an artist’s work? And, with what devices can a writer affect issues their body can present– for instance via symbolism, or by changing media, or in the physical circumstances of reading and writing?
