The Living Writers Reading Series: Truong Tran
November 8, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm | Humanities Lecture Hall, Room 206
Into Archives—Across Genres is a reading/performance series featuring poets, critics, memoirists, activists, visual artists, essayists, short story writers, and novelists who mine various archives to investigate race, gender, sexuality, and class. Writing across multiple disciplines – whether via the epistle, film & photo essay, poem, story, collage or hybrid text – these authors mine history and present day experience, exploring and complicating the possibilities and features of genre in their art.
Truong Tran is a poet and visual artist. He is the author of five collections of poetry, and a children’s book. His work has been translated into Dutch, French, Spanish and Vietnamese. Truong recently presented both his visual and written work at the Smithsonian Gallery in Washington DC. In 2011, he was featured writer at The Poetry Festival International, in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
