Amaranth Borsuk publishes, sprints, and exhibits her works

Sprint Beyond the BookMarch 7, 2014 - IAS faculty member Amaranth Borsuk participated in the Sprint Beyond the Book, a two-day writing sprint about the future of the book that brought together a wide range of thinkers at Arizona State University's Cen­ter for Sci­ence and the Imag­i­na­tion. Included in the project are a short interview and a series of short chapters written in dialogue with two faculty members from the university. She also presented her work at Georgia Tech through an invitation by the Brittain Fellows and read poems at Ciné for the Vox reading series.  She hosted an evening of dance/text collaboration with K.J. Holmes and Julie Carr for From the Convergence Zone, the reading series of the MFA in Creative Writing & Poetics. She exhibited her work in London as part of “Threads of Light: Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here” at The Mosaic Rooms and “Displaced” at the Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust & Genocide. In her spare time, she wrote a libretto on the birth of spiritualism for a collaboration with composer Isaac Schankler that appeared in Witness.
