Tantric Poetics
Some Exercises in Translation
27 February @ 5.00pm


I would like to present critical and creative studies of a few aspects of translation: the dictionary as authority; the lexicographer; cultural translations; and multilingual poetry. I will relate discussions around feminism, history, etymology, and Indology to the work of selected women writers as well as to my own creative practice.

Brief Bio
I am a Practice-Based PhD student in Poetic Practice. I am undertaking a study of experimental feminist poetics from a Tantric perspective, drawing comparisons between subversive strategies, focus on female divinity, and use of the body in ritual and performance.
