Event Description
The University of Kansas Undergraduate Reading Series showcases exceptional student writing in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. This final reading of the semester, presented in celebration of National Poetry Month, features Megan Murphy, Dana Peterson, Jaryd Porter, Crystal Bradshaw, Maddie Level, and Liz James, who will read from “Fleurs de Vie,” poetry produced during her Integrated Arts Research Initiative (IARI) fellowship. IARI aims to infuse the arts into the research culture of the University of Kansas by advancing interdisciplinary projects across the sciences and humanities in collaboration with the Museum. Generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, IARI proposes to transform the art museum into an active hub for collaborative research between the arts and other disciplines.
