The Humanities Institute is excited to announce that Amy Catanzano has been awarded the spring 2019 Reynolda Conference Grant for Entanglements: A Conference on the Intersections of Poetry, Science, and Art. Amy is Associate Professor and Poet-in-Residence in the English department, and is nationally renowned for her poetry and experimental fiction which investigates the mutual implications of poetics and science. Amy has proposed an ambitious, exciting conference which will bring together leading poets, scholars, and artists to Wake Forest in May 2019 for three full days of learning and practice.
The Reynolda Conference is funded by a grant for Engaged Humanities from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Reynolda Conference competitive grant offers faculty $20,000 to hold a three- to five-day seminar on a humanities topic of their choice. The grant award supports travel, lodging, and stipends for invited scholars of the conference planner’s choosing, as well as stipends for participating WFU and Triad area scholars. In August, the Humanities Institute will circulate a call for proposals for the 2020 Reynolda Conference.
