As a professor of English with a specialty in modern poetry, Brian Reed became intrigued by the way poets across cultures and ages have written about birds. He is fascinated by the way the avian species has been a rich source of poetic inspiration. Reed, the Divisional Dean of the Humanities at the University of Washington, will take us on a visual and auditory exploration of this deep and creative relationship. He is a specialist in twentieth-and twenty-first century poetry and poetics, particularly American poetry. He did his undergraduate work at Harvard University and doctoral studies at Stanford University, and is a past Rhodes and Fulbright Scholar, and the author of books on Hart Crane, avant-garde poetics, and essays on modern and contemporary poetics.
