Online Poetry: Medicine for the Soul featuring Kate Hollander

 

The Stockbridge Library, Museum & Archives invites you to Online Poetry: Medicine for the Soul featuring poet Kate Hollander on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. This event will be hosted virtually through The Stockbridge Library Zoom account.

Kate Hollander is a poet and an historian of modern Europe, as well as a critic and translator. During the 2019/2020 academic year, she taught creative writing at Boston University and European and world history at Simmons University.

Kate is the author of a book of poems, My German Dictionary, out from the Waywiser Press in October, 2019 and is the winner of the Anthony Hecht Poetry Prize, judged by Charles Wright.

As an historian, Kates current scholarly book project focuses on a group of German-speaking artists and intellectuals in exile in Denmark in the 1930s. Moving from turn-of-the-century Vienna to Weimar Berlin, following the group into exile in Southern Fyn, and then on still more perilous journeys across Europe in flight from fascism, the project  illuminates the mechanics and meaning of this intensely collaborative socialist group.

Kate earned a PhD in modern European history from Boston University in 2015, as well as an MA in poetry from Boston University in 2006. She was the Visiting Assistant Professor of European and World History at University of Hartford 2016-2018, and the Faculty Fellow in Modern European History at Colby College 2018-2019.
