CREES Noon Lecture. Playing with Words, Talking about War
In this talk, Morse will introduce the book and some of its protagonists, while also indulging in a discussion of their work as a specifically post-war phenomenon. How might the same childlike lexical and formal elements, abundant humor, and childlike lyric speakers, which served as markers of unofficial aesthetics, additionally participate in articulating wartime and post-war experience (likewise excluded from official narratives)?
Ainsley Morse teaches in the Russian and comparative literature departments at Dartmouth College and is a translator of Russian and former Yugoslav literatures. Her research focuses on the literature and culture of the post-war Soviet period, particularly unofficial or "underground" poetry, as well as the avant-garde and children's literature. She translates Soviet and post-Soviet Russophone literature and theory, as well as former Yugoslav and contemporary B/C/S literature and, most recently, Ukrainian modernist and contemporary poetry.
This lecture will be presented in person in 555 Weiser Hall and on Zoom. Webinar registration required at http://myumi.ch/Ek1we
