Rethinking Lyric
Communities

Workshop, 5 Jul 2022, 14:00

Across different epochs and cultural traditions, lyric poetry manifests peculiar ways of making its language and forms shareable and emerges as a privileged site to explore models of community and their politics. By bringing the investigation of historical poetic communities into dialogue with recent developments in the theory of the lyric, this workshop will explore the lyric, in its longer history and transnational features, as a discursive mode that may offer alternative models of community formation.

Organized by Irene Fantappiè, Francesco Giusti, and Laura Scuriatti. In cooperation with ICI Berlin, Bard College Berlin, and EXC Temporal Communities of FU Berlin. With the support of the Oxford-Berlin Research Partnership

In-person: Registration required

Staged Reading & Discussion, 5 Jul 2022, 19:00

Poetry can unite and estrange us. In this event, poets and translators Vahni Anthony Capildeo, Christian Hawkey and Daniel Tiffany, will read a selection of their poetry and offer their reflections on the proximity and alienation of other people’s voices or even one’s own; on the sense of never quite being at home in language; and on the potential of poetry to open up not only habitable and shareable spaces but also haunted and unbridgeable distances.

NEW ICI BERLIN PRESS PUBLICATION
 
Openness in Medieval Europe

Openness in
Medieval Europe


ed. by Manuele Gragnolati and Almut Suerbaum
Cultural Inquiry, 23
Berlin: ICI Berlin Press, 2022

Open Access

This volume challenges the persistent association of the Middle Ages with closure and fixity. Bringing together a range of disciplines and perspectives, it identifies and uncovers forms of openness which are often obscured by modern assumptions, and demonstrates how they coexist with, or even depend upon, enclosure and containment in paradoxical and unexpected ways. Explored through notions such as porosity, vulnerability, exposure, unfinishedness, and inclusivity, openness turns out to permeate medieval culture, unsettling boundaries, binaries, and clear-cut distinctions.

Print version (Paperback) 17 €
Print version (Hardcover) 32 €
