/*Eddings Lecture* //*by C. S. Giscombe*/

*Thursday, March 22
*4:30 pm*

Eliot Chapel
*Reed College*

*Poet C. S. Giscombe's lecture will consider aesthetic and racial 
underpinnings of literary production, especially in terms of 
“experimental” or “difficult” texts. In particular, Giscombe will 
address the question of what happens and what’s at stake when 
contemporary North American poets of color claim literary ancestry, 
especially when such ancestry includes white writers, both those “of 
good will” and those whose work exhibits racist thinking.
C.S. Giscombe* is currently a professor at the University of California, 
Berkeley. His recent books include /Into and Out of Dislocation, Prairie 
Style, Ohio Railroads, Border Towns,/ /Giscome Road, Here/, and others. 
He is currently at work on a poetry book titled /Negro Mountain/ and a 
multi-genre prose book titled /Railroad Sense/. His writing has recently 
appeared in /Chicago Review, Callaloo, Iowa Review/, and elsewhere.
