FB event for tonight: Let us know you are coming!
Amy Catanzano is an American poet whose current work as a writer explores the interdisciplinary intersections of poetry and science with a focus on quantum mechanics and innovative art and literature. Her visit to Paris is part of an investigative experiment in quantum poetics that starts with travel from the United States to the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva through the support of an arts and humanities grant from Wake Forest University, where she is an assistant professor and poet-in-residence. Catanzano then goes to the Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc in the Spanish Pyrenees, where she has been invited to be present for the formal review of an experiment studying neutrinos. A visit to the Donostia International Physics Center in San Sebastian follows, where she will give a poetry reading and lecture on science and poetry through the center’s Mestizajes Programme, which explores the relationship of science, literature, and art. In addition to reading in the Ivy Writers Paris Reading Series, she is participating in a poetry festival and teaching a guest workshop in science and writing. Catanzano’s latest book is Starlight in Two Million: A Neo-Scientific Novella, recipient of the Noemi Press Book Award for Fiction. She is also the author of Multiversal, recipient of the PEN USA Literary Award in Poetry, and iEpiphany. She has an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and a BA from Colorado State University.
