Canadian poet Adam Dickinson and Philadelphia poet Katie Price take their biological bodies as sites of productive poetic research. What do we learn about language from examining the metabolic, genetic, and immunological writing that takes place within our own bodies? How are our bodies read and written by medical practitioners, pharmaceuticals, industries, and chemicals? In what ways does the world around us write our bodies? The writers will stage a conversation—interspersed with poetry—about the relationship between literature and our bodies.
