Global Georgia Conversation: Ed Pavlić, Christine Cuomo & Cynthia Wallace

March 31, 7pm

"Outward: The Radical Legacies of Adrienne Rich - A Conversation with Ed Pavlić, Christine Cuomo & Cynthia Wallace" is presented as part of the Global Georgia Initiative public events series of the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, in partnership with the department of English, the Creative Writing Program, and the Institute for Women's Studies.

Ed Pavlić's book, Outward: Adrienne Rich’s Expanding Solitudes was published in 2021 by the University of Minnesota Press. In it, Pavlić considers Rich’s entire oeuvre to argue that her most profound contribution in poems is her emphasis on not only what goes on “within us” but also what goes on “between us.” He shows how Rich’s most radical work depicts our lives—from the public to the intimate—in shared space rather than in owned privacy.

Pavlić is Distinguished Research Professor of English and African American studies, and affiliated faculty in creative writing, at UGA. His 13 published and forthcoming books range across (and at times between) genres: poetry, non-fiction, critical studies, and a novel.

Christine Cuomo is professor of philosophy and women's studies at UGA, and an affiliate faculty member of the Environmental Ethics Certificate Program, the Institute for African-American Studies, the Institute for Native American Studies, and the UGA Initiative for Climate and Society.

Cynthia R. Wallace is associate professor and head of the department of English at St. Thomas More College, University of Saskatchewan, where she teaches and writes at the intersections of gender, race, religion, and politics in contemporary literature. Her book Of Women Borne: A Literary Ethics of Suffering was published by Columbia University Press in 2016.
