Susan Howe and David Grubbs in London

Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities

Susan Howe and David Grubbs

Susan Howe and David Grubbs will speak about the ideas that have nourished their collaboration as poet and musician. Howe and Grubbs have released two CDs, Thiefth (2005) and Souls of the Labadie Tract (2006), works which take the encounter between poetry and music into new territory. Each will speak for around 30 minutes and the second hour will be devoted to questions and discussion. Susan Howe’s explorations of American history and letters place her in a line that runs from Emily Dickinson through Wallace Stevens to the frontiers of 21st-century lyric. David Grubbs is a former member of the post-rock group Gastr Del Sol whose subsequent career is notable both for his acclaimed solo releases and his collaborations with artists and writers.

Wednesday 7th October 3-5 pm. Room B35, Birkbeck Main Building

Presented jointly by the Poetics Research Group at Royal Holloway, University of London and Birkbeck Contemporary Poetics Research Centre. Supported by Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities, by the Humanities and Arts Research Centre, the Faculty of Arts and the English Department at Royal Holloway, University of London.
