    International Digital Language | Arts Festival
    May 18-21, 2011
    University at Buffalo
    Web registration now available! Specially-priced advance registration offered during March 2011 only!

    If you are interested in the emerging edge of language-informed arts practice, whether as a poet, writer, artist, media innovator, scholar, teacher, performer, or in any other disciplines, E-Poetry offers a context for practice and analysis that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. For its tenth anniversary, E-Poetry has been brought back to Buffalo, a central and accessible location for its activities. It will provide a mix of practices, with the emphasis on emerging practices in multiple disciplines that find themselves embedded or even just on the edge of the digital. It will convene a celebratory (in the triumphant spirit of preceding historic poetry festivals) and thought-filled gathering of 150 artists, writers, and scholars from 40 countries — a diversity and culturally rich offering that won’t be found elsewhere.

    2-5pm, Wednesday, March 17, 2010
    301 Crosby Hall, South Campus
    University at Buffalo

    This half-day event brings together artists, architects and researchers to examine the evolving overlaps, intersections, and exchanges between the fields of Architecture and Media Art in the 21st century. As media, communication and information systems become embedded in and distributed throughout the material fabric of our daily lives, new opportunities (and dilemmas) emerge for the design and construction of the built environment. At the same time, these pervasive transformations in how we access, consume and produce contemporary media and information challenge traditional models for how we conceive, perceive and interact within physical space. Bringing together faculty from the departments of Architecture and Media Study at the University at Buffalo with faculty from the Media Architecture program at the Bauhaus–Universität, Weimar, Germany, this international gathering aims to highlight emerging transdisciplinary practices that integrate architectonic and medial space in the creation and construction of these emerging hybrid environments.

    The program consists of a six presentations and pair of panel discussions accompanied by a live, networked event/performance involving students from both Buffalo and Weimar.

    Loss Pequeño Glazier Reading/Performance

    colloquium image

    September 11, 7: 30 pm
    Poetry Collection (4th floor, Capen Library)

    In the fall 2009, University at Buffalo, in collaboration with the European journal _Formules_, is sponsoring on the UB campus a bi-lingual international Colloquium entitled Urbanités Littéraires / Cityscapes – Literary Escapes. The goal of the conference is to study the relationship between writing and the urban environment, and specify interactive engagements between literature, architecture, and urbanism.

    Friday, September 11, 7:30 pm Key Speaker, Loss Pequeño Glazier

    Introduction: Justin Read — University at Buffalo
    Loss Pequeño Glazier — University at Buffalo


    “Guaniquiqui” is an exploration of the play of languages, whether Cuban and African languages, Cuban and colonial Spanish, or Cuban and English. It explores the cultural landscape through a quiet insistence on detail, the play of colors and light, simple observations, cultural intuition, economic realities, and the crumbling architecture of old Havana. How does a culture synthesize so much of the American past and, though isolated, insist on a real presence in the present world? Through this process, with a focus on the material nature of language, “Guaniquiqui” hopes to present a way to see the world, the post-colonial and politically alternative, that both enriches and informs our understanding of human being in a difficult, but expressively rich, present age. This performance/reading will explore such themes, opening doors to this often-inaccessible culture through poetic practice, expressive utterances, and the unspoken views of passing observations.

    *NOTE: Admission is free for UB faculty, staff, and students but they
    are asked to PRE-REGISTER ( Please type “Student” in the “Communication” field. Please check the box “No fee $0” and put “$0” in the “Total cost” box. This event includes a Reception buffet (at 7:00 pm).*
