January 31 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Amy Catanzano, an associate professor of English and the poet-in-residence at Wake Forest University, will discuss her independent poetry projects as well as her collaborations with scientists that explore some of the most cutting-edge physics and technologies of our time such as high-energy particle colliders, dark energy astrophysics, quantum computing, and artificial intelligence. The author of three books and a forthcoming book on poetry and physics with the University of Michigan Press, Professor Catanzano’s honors include the PEN USA Literary Award in Poetry, the Noemi Press Book Award in Fiction, the Poets Out Loud Prize from Fordham University Press, and invited residences at major scientific research centers such as CERN in Switzerland and the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics in New York.
