CO2 and All Larry Eigner’s Ecrippoetics and Climate Change
November 5, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
EGSA’s Faculty Lecture Series
Dr. George Hart
“CO2 and All Larry Eigner’s Ecrippoetics and Climate Change”
This talk will explain how Larry Eigner, born with Cerebral Palsy in 1927, became one of the first American poets to address climate change and global warming. By combining ecocriticism and disability studies, the presentation will demonstrate that Eigner’s particular experience of embodiment and interest in social issues produced an idiosyncratic “ecrippoetics.”
