The Zeitgeist and Me - Jeanne Heuving, Ph.D.

Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 6-8PM   |  Hugo House, Seattle
Jeanne-Heuving portraitPresented by UW Bothell Office of Research.

The zeitgeist, loosely translated as “the spirit of the age,” was once a popular term to evaluate directions in experimental and avant-garde art, but now largely has fallen into disuse. In this talk, Dr. Heuving, resurrects this term, so steeped in the past that its nostalgia provides an apt platform for discussing her work—in step and out of step with defining ventures of her time. 

As a scholar and creative writer, Dr. Heuving has been committed to thinking through the protracted gestures and ephemeral possibilities of her peers and her own work. Dr. Heuving discusses how her earliest work was called into existence through the infectious, alienated voices of the experimental fiction of the 1970’s before finding in poetry and cross genre writing a set of possibilities apart from these voices. 

Her recently published book The Transmutation of Love and Avant-Garde Poetics explores a revisioning in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries of the exalted tradition of Western love poetry, millennia in the making, such that its male and heterosexual proclivities are bypassed.  In between is a protracted period of Incapacity, a condition she at once courts and that delivers its own fist to cuffs.  She concludes with “what now?” talking about her soon to be published prose and poetry work, Mood Indigo.
