On 12th December, at 5.30pm, Profesor Jan Baetens (Univ. of Leuven) will be at room 203 for the open seminar “On the public reading of poetry”. Free entrance.

Abstract: Poetry, today, is no longer just written: it is read aloud, if not performed. Reading poetry to a living audience is a very ancient practice, even during the heyday of print culture. In this lecture, I will address both the history and the current types of performance, and discuss some problems of this migration from page to voice.
