In this episode, Knar Gavin shares and reflects on “Problems of Place: Breath Under Threat, With And In the Absence of Iodine.”
Dr. Knar Gavin (they/any) recently obtained a PhD in English at the University of Pennsylvania. Their research attends to representations of environmental crisis in late 20th- and 21st-century poetry and poetics, and they are especially drawn toward engaging the prefigurative political possibilities that emerge in works of docu- and eco-poetry to contend with U.S. imperial power. Knar is also the co-creator of the covidXclimate project at the Penn Program for Environmental Humanities.
