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.
