This panel will consider the uses of personal and historical archives for creative practices (narrative, poetic, or visual).  What are the objects and situations by which we constitute our lives in writing? Participants will include Gus Rose (author of the novel The Readymade Thief), Lynn Xu (author of the poetry collection Debts and Lessons), Rachel Cohen (author of the critical biography Bernard Berenson: A Life in the Picture Trade), and Rachel DeWoskin (author of the novel Second Circus). Edgar Garcia, Neubauer Family Assistant Professor of English, will moderate the panel discussion.
