International Authors: On the Body

A person’s body affects the way they navigate the world, and their experiences in it. How much power does a body (pertaining for instance to race, gender, sexuality, physical ability) have over (or in) an artist’s work? And, with what means can a writer navigate issues the body can present-- for instance via symbolism, or changing of technology, or in the physical act of reading or writing?

The International Authors series provides an opportunity for the community to meet and converse with writers from around the world who are the 2019 Writers in Residence at the University of Iowa International Writing Program. The series is sponsored by The UI International Writing Program and The Iowa City Public Library.
