When will American poetry and poetics stop viewing poetry by racialized persons as a secondary subject within the field? Dorothy J. Wang, Professor of American Studies (Williams College), makes an impassioned case that now is the time. Thinking Its Presence: Form, Race, and Subjectivity in Contemporary Asian American Poetry calls for a radical rethinking of how American poetry is being read today, offering its own reading as a roadmap.

Join scholar Dorothy J. Wang and a gathering of contemporary Chinese American poets in a dialogue about the impact of racial subjectivity on the conception of Asian American poetic form, craft and aesthetic. Marilyn Chin, Paolo Javier, and John Yau and will perform original work showcasing a range of aesthetic styles within the field of Asian American poetry, from traditional lyric to avant-garde.
