Entanglements: Rae Armantrout & the Poetry of Physics


One of the favorite subjects of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Rae Armantrout (Professor Emerita, UC San Diego) is physics—from the big ideas of cosmology to the infinitesimally small wonders of the quantum world. To celebrate the publication of Entanglements, a chapbook selection of her science-minded poems, Brian Keating (Astrophysics, UC San Diego) and the Clarke Center are hosting an evening with Rae Armantrout, who will read selections and discuss the creative process behind her work. Keating, along with Brandon Som (Creative Writing, UC San Diego) and Amelia Glaser (Literature, UC San Diego), will join her in a conversation about how these poems mix the personal with the scientific and speculative, the process of interdisciplinary creativity, and what her poetic engagement with physics can teach those working in the physical sciences.
