Kelly Writers Series presents: Marilyn Chin

Add to Calendar7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Marilyn Chin, an award-winning Chinese American poet, writer and activist, is coming to DePauw University in the Spring of 2018 as Mary Rogers Field and Marion Field-McKenna Distinguished University Professor of Creative Writing.

Chin was born in Hong Kong but grew up in Oregon. "A noted anthologist, translator and educator as well as a poet and novelist, Chin's work distills her experiences both as an Asian American and as a politically attuned woman," notes a Poetry Foundation biography. "Her poetry is noted for its direct and often confrontational attitude. "

A retired faculty member in the San Diego State University Department of English and Comparative Literature M.F.A. program, Chin's work is a frequent subject of academic research and literary criticism.

Her honors include the United Artists Foundation Fellowship, the Radcliffe Institute Fellowship at Harvard, the Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship at Bellagio, the SeaChange fellowship from the Gaia Foundation, two National Endowment for the Arts grants, the Stegner Fellowship, five Pushcart Prizes, a Fulbright Fellowship to Taiwan and the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award.

Sponsored by the Mary Rogers Field and Marion Field-McKenna Distinguished University Professor of Creative Writing, in affiliation with the Kelly Writers Series.

Free and open to the public.

Adrienne Russell, Mary Laird Wood Professor of Journalism and the Environment, Department of Communication at the University of Washington.

Add to Calendar4:00 pm – 6:10 pm

In the digital era, mediated communication is changing fast and eating up ever greater shares of real-world power.  Journalism, rocked by change, remains one of the most contested sites of communication power, an expanded space where citizens, protesters, tech developers and hackers, along with political operatives, foreign meddlers, and software bots, directly shape the news.  While there is reason for alarm in the red-hot era of misinformation and so-called fake news, there is also evidence that a more robust journalism is being forged in the heat.  Adrienne will talk about her research on the contemporary confluence of journalism and activism, the ways reporters covering politics across media and genres have taken cues from activist communication and are liberating journalism from professional pracitces that have failed to reliably serve the public interest.  This event is free and open to the public.   #PulliamCtr #TalksAndArts
