Dr Ahren Warner - Fellowship Inaugural Lecture

Presented By Dr Ahren Warner

About this event

Dr Ahren Warner, Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow in the School of Arts, English and Drama, will be delivering his Fellowship Inaugural Lecture on Tuesday 27 March.  The lecture will be introduced by Professor Steve Rothberg, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research) and followed by a light lunch for attendees.


Certain Very Bold Instructions: Poetry, New Media and the Lyric Idea

As both a poet and literary critic, Ahren’s interests lie in how the expanded potential of media other than the page and book might not just open up new avenues for the dissemination of literature, but might also offer up new forms and ways of using words to affect the reader. In this talk, Ahren will primarily discuss his own practice-based research, whilst showing a poem or two that happen to occur within digital media, and keeping one eye on wider philosophical and literary historical contexts.
