Lost & Found: The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative is back and launching its fourth series at New York's CUNY Graduate Center in Room C198 on April 3. The projects for this round are amazing. Hmm?

Join us for a celebration of the publication of Lost & Found: The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative Series IV, an award-winning, internationally recognized publication of original research and extra-poetic work edited by Graduate Center students and faculty. Editors will read, perform, present multimedia, and discuss their projects, which include the Pauline Kael and Robert Duncan correspondence; a film script by Ed Dorn intended for Stan Brakhage; Adrienne Rich’s CUNY teaching materials from the early years of Open Admissions; Before Gloucester, portraying poet Vincent Ferrini’s years as a factory worker, and After the Harlem Renaissance, the later poems of Helene Johnson. Lost & Found Series IV will be available for pre-publication purchase.

Cosponsored by the PhD Program in English. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
