About this event

In this talk, Dr Ahren Warner (poet, editor and critic) will discuss his own practice-based research, showing a poem or two that happen to occur within digital media, and keeping an eye on philosophical and literary historical contexts. 

As both a poet and literary critic, his interests lie in how the expanded potential of media other than the page and book might not simply open up new avenues for the dissemination of literature, but might also offer up new forms and new ways of using words to affect the reader.

From a historical perspective, the slow pace of literature’s embrace of new media, compared to the parallel history of visual art, will also offer up a way to talk about how his own creative research is interested in an ‘expanded’ model of poetry, that – drawing on filmmakers like Chris Marker or fine artists such as Harun Farocki – allows lyric language to operate across media, as well as into and via other literary and cultural forms.
