Loss Pequeño Glazier

ICE is pleased to welcome Dr. Loss Pequeño Glazier – poet, Professor of Media Study, and Director of the Electronic Poetry Center at SUNY Buffalo – as a visiting artist and lecturer April 7 -9. Dr. Glazier has widely published both his poetry and his theoretical writings on the electronic text and has created performance-based works that present “a reading and projection of visual, kinetic, text, and Java-based compositions for electronic space.” His most recent book of poetry, Anatman, Pumpkin Seed, Algorithm, was published by Salt Publishing in 2003, and has been described by Charles Bernstein as ‘flying through the textual air and landing on all three sides of every border crossing.’ Digital Poetics: The Making of E-Poetries was published in 2002 by University of Alabama Press and has become one of the most significant examinations of the intersection between poetics and technology. Glazier is a thoughtful scholar and pioneer of the textual condition, exploring languages as they overlap in the accelerating border-crossings of the global age, including his childhood in bilingual South Texas and his extensive travels, and languages as they warp and adapt in the materiality of new technologies.

On Thursday April 8, Dr. Glazier will speak about his experience as Director of the Electronic Poetry Center at 11:00 AM in Park Hall room 261. An informal reception with refreshments will follow. At 7:00 PM he will give a public lecture and reading in the Visual Arts Building room 117.

On Friday April 9 at 1:00 PM, Dr. Glazier will lead an open workshop at the ICE Studio, Tanner Building room 101. Dr.

Glazier’s visit is sponsored by the Lanier Speaker Series and ICE. All events are free and open to the public. For more information about Dr. Glazier and the Electronic Poetry Center visit http://epc.buffalo.edu.
