Can Poetry Save the Earth?

The Stanford Environmental Humanities Project is pleased to present a conversation about art and activism entitled Can Poetry Save the Earth? Inspired by Professor Emeritus John Felstiner's 2010 book of the same title, this event brings together a panel of local poets who will read from their work and respond to the questions Prof. Felstiner raises about the urgency of poetic expression in precarious times.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of English and the Program in Modern Thought & Literature.
When: March 6th, 6-8 pm
Where: Terrace Room, Margaret Jacks Hall
What: Poetry readings, panel discussion, questions and answers
John Felstiner (Stanford): Professor Emeritus of English and author of Can Poetry Save the Earth?: A Field Guide to Nature Poems (2010)
