The Literature for inclusion is delighted to host a conversation with Meagan Lehr, the author of the poetry collection Men in Correspondence (JackLeg Press, 2013).
In this event, Meagan will read from her collection and talk about her poetry and her publication with Libe García Zarranz.
Lehrs poetry explores the gaps in familial histories, creating experimental spaces from the letters, postcards and artifacts of domestic archives. Her conversations with these voices unsettle familiar genres and give rise to new constellations of gender, romance, and grief out of missed transmissions.
Meagan Lehr is a poet, editor, and teacher from Northern California. A graduate of the MFA Program at the University of Arizona, she was managing editor for the digital literary magazine The Destroyer, and her first collection of poetry, Men in Correspondence, was published by Jackleg Press in 2013. Currently living in Trondheim, Norway, she has taught creative writing and women’s studies at the University of Arizona, Elmira College, and Montana State University.
Libe García Zarranz is currently Associate Professor of Literature in English in the Dept of Teacher Education at NTNU. She is also Research Affiliate for the Canadian Literature Centre at the University of Alberta, Canada. Libe teaches and researches at the intersection of feminist, queer and trans literary studies, media studies, and affect studies. She is now co-editing a collection titled Living and Learning with Feminist Ethics and Poetics Today (2023) and she is the author of the monograph TransCanadian Feminist Fictions: New Cross-Border Ethics (McGill Queen’s UP, 2017). Libe believes that collaboration, mentorship, and networking can be modes of feminist pedagogy.
This event is part of poetry without borders organized by the Literature for inclusion initiative in collaboration with Hanna Musiol, Associate
Professor of English at NTNU, and NTNU’s research project TransLit: Sustainable Ethics, Affects, and Pedagogies led by Associate Professor
of Literature in English, Libe García Zarranz.
