He is fascinated by the way the avian species has been a rich source of poetic inspiration. Reed, the UW Divisional Dean of the Humanities, will take us on a visual and auditory exploration of this deep and creative relationship. He is a specialist in twentieth-and twenty-first century poetry and poetics, particularly American poetry. He did his undergraduate work at Harvard University and doctoral studies at Stanford University, is a past Rhodes and Fulbright Scholar, and is the author of books on Hart Crane, avant-garde poetics, and essays on modern and contemporary poetics.
