The Poetry, Poetics, and Literary Translation Research Group

The Poetry, Poetics, and Literary Translation Research Group coordinates and promotes the reading, writing, and critical exploration of contemporary poetry, poetics, and translation theory. It highlights relevant events and resources within and beyond the University of Lincoln, and provides a regular forum and seeks to stimulate debate, collaboration, and innovation among poets, translators, critics, and theorists––both staff, students, alumni, and writers linked to the University. The Research Group sponsors and brings together activity in readings, workshops, exhibitions, lectures, publications, research projects, seminars, and symposia in and around the University of Lincoln. Many events, such as our guest speakers and visiting poets series, are open to the public. 

Recent works by members of the group––articles, books, essays, interviews, reviews, translations, and original poetry––have appeared or are forthcoming with various publishers and in national and international journals, magazines, and anthologies, including Bombay Gin, Broken Sleep Books, Conjunctions, edition taberna kritika, Evergreen ReviewGuernica Magazine, Harper's MagazineHotel, Los Angeles Review of Books, New Directions, Plume, Poetry InternationalPoetry London, Seagull Books, The Rialto, Versal, Verse DailyWretched Strangers, and 3:AM Magazine


Our members also contribute to a number of humanitarian projects, including the Rwanda Refugee Poetry Project at the University of Lincoln, the International Refugee Poetry Network, and the Justice Arts and Migration Network. In addition, members serve as editors, readers, and curators for the following academic and literary publications/publishers as well as arts/literary organisations: Black Lawrence PressMAYDAY Magazine, SO FestivalThe Abandoned Playground, and The Lincoln Review.          


We encourage all students, staff, and members of the wider community to learn more about our research and activities by attending our public events.
