Join the Department of English for an evening of readings and discussion with writers Eleni Sikelianos and Julie Carr.


Eleni Sikelianos is the author of ten books of poetry and two hybrid works which employ a range of forms and fields, often the sciences, as a means to explore ways of knowing. Deeply engaged with ecopoetics, taking up urgent concerns of environmental precarity and ancestral lineages, her most recent book is Your Kingdom (Winter 2023). She has collaborated widely with other artists, including composer Philip Glass and filmmaker Ed Bowes. Her poems and nonfiction have been translated into over a dozen languages, and she has taught poetry in public schools, homeless shelters, and prisons.  She currently teaches at Brown University.

Julie Carr’s most recent books are Mud, Blood, and Ghosts: Populism, Eugenics, and Spiritualism in the American West; Real Life: An Installation; Climate, co-written with Lisa Olstein; and the essay collection, Someone Shot My Book. Underscore, a book of poems, will be out from Omnidawn in 2024. She lives in Denver where she co-founded and helps to run Counterpath and teaches at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
