Join us for a reading by Jennifer Scappettone to kick off her residency and workshop at the Lynden Sculpture Garden.

 


Jennifer Scappettone works at the crossroads of writing, translation, and scholarly research, on the page and off. She is the author of the hybrid-genre verse books From Dame Quickly (Litmus, 2009) and The Republic of Exit 43: Outtakes & Scores from an Archaeology and Pop-Up Opera of the Corporate Dump (just out from Atelos Press), and of the scholarly study Killing the Moonlight: Modernism in Venice (Columbia University Press, 2014). Her translations from the Italian of the polyglot poet and musicologist Amelia Rosselli were collected in the award-winning book Locomotrix: Selected Poetry and Prose of Amelia Rosselli. She founded, and curates, PennSound Italiana, a new sector of the audiovisual archive based at the University of Pennsylvania devoted to experimental Italian poetry. Her installation pieces were exhibited most recently at Una Vetrina Gallery in Rome and WUHO Gallery in Los Angeles, and she has collaborated on site-specific performance works with a wide spectrum of musicians, architects, code artists, and dancers, at locations ranging from the tract of Trajan’s aqueduct beneath the American Academy in Rome to Fresh Kills Landfill. Scappettone is an associate professor of various subjects—including, most recently, ecopoetics, urban utopias and dystopias, and Babel—at the University of Chicago.
