Please join the Harriman Institute for a poetry reading by Damir Arsenijevic. Damir Arsenijevic is an international cultural worker, critic, theorist, scholar, and translator working in the fields of cultural, gender, and literary studies. His research and art-theory political interventions examine the impact of the terror of inequality, the solidarity of unbribable life, relevant knowledge production, and material memories of war and genocide. He holds a PhD in English Literature and Cultural Studies from De Montfort University, Leicester, UK, leading projects and lecturing internationally in cultural, literary and gender studies. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Tuzla-based Grad-Centre for Research, Art and Civic Engagement, and a member of the artistic-theory Grupa Spomenik (Belgrade, Tuzla, Rijeka, Berlin, San Francisco). He is one of the founders of the international platform Yugoslav Studies--a production space for the interaction of art, theory, education, and politics. This talk is part of the "LGBT Hope and Human Rights in the Western Balkans" Lecture Series. This event is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
