  • York Chang (b. 1973, St. Louis, MO) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses forensic and archival information systems as supports for poetic gestures and alternate histories, in order to interrogate the aesthetic conventions of authority which often serve to blur the line between fiction and reality. He earned both his BFA (1996) and Juris Doctorate (2001) from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • Oliver Kellhammer is an independent artist, writer and researcher, who seeks, through his botanical interventions and social art practice, to demonstrate nature’s surprising ability to recover from damage. His recent work has focused on the psychosocial effects of climate change, cleaning up contaminated soils, reintroducing prehistoric trees to landscape damaged by industrial logging and cataloging the ecology of brownfield ecologies. He currently works as a lecturer in sustainable systems at Parsons in New York City.
     
  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Barbara Maloutas: 2012-13 Faculty Development Grant Report


AWP Conference & Bookfair, March 6-9, 2013

Faculty development grant to support expenses while attending the annual Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) Conference & Bookfair from March 6-9 in Boston.

Excerpt:

Over 11,000 writers, editors, and publishers turned out this year for the Association of Writers and Writing Programs' Conference, making it one of the biggest literary hootenannies for anyone with a passion for putting words on the page.

There are over 500 sessions devoted to topics of interest to both writers and teachers of writing, ranging from esoteric discussions of character development to the thorny business of publishing your first novel.

It took two of us an hour to figure out what panels were worth attending on a specific day. There were two documents to go back and forth between ... It was first thing on Thursday that we realized what was at issue when we didn’t plan ahead and get to a panel early. There were 100 people outside the small room for the panel – Modern Fairy Tales & Retellings. I ended up down the hall in Looking for Real-Life Humberts: The Unreliable Narrator in Creative Nonfiction. It turned out to be an excellent choice.
