Anthropology and Poetry Lecture

Oneida Veterans Memorial, Kenzie Allen

This event will be the second lecture in the Anthropology & Poetry Speaker and Workshop Series. The public lecture will be led by poet Kenzie Allen and will build on themes raised in her graduate student generative writing workshop from earlier in the day. Kenzie Allen received her MFA in poetry from the University of Michigan in 2014 and was awarded Hopwood Prizes for poetry and nonfiction. A member of the Oneida Nation, her work blurs ethnography and poetry and tackles issues of identity, representation, and belonging.
