Dear fellow linguists, language lovers, teachers, students, and pupils,

Macht alle mit und join us at our colloquium "Mehrsprachigkeit, Sprachkontakt, Sprachvariation" on Thursday, June 4th, 2020, 19.30 at Humboldt-Universität Berlin for a special poetry reading:

"Written City: Poetics and Urban Form" A transatlantic poetry reading with Greg Nissan

Greg Nissan is a writer and translator. In many of his works, he transforms linguistic phenomena such as code- and language-mixing into poetry, picking up the vibe that urban areas characterize. He is a recipient of Fulbright and National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, he is the author of The City Is Lush With / Obstructed Views (DoubleCross Press). His writing has appeared in BOMB, Boston Review', Conjunctions, Denver Quarterly, and Frieze. From 2015 to 2016 he was a member of the Centre for Language, Variation, and Migration at the University of Potsdam. He edited the poetry section for SAND: Berlin's English Literary Journal from 2016 to 2018 and is currently translating Ann Cotten's Banned! An Epic Poem from the German.

Join us for this interdisciplinary event where linguistics meets poetry. Ganz especially freuen wir uns auch auf Lehrer*innen, die mit ihren Klassen an dem Reading teilnehmen!

Best wishes,
Prof. Dr. Heike Wiese
Speaker of the Center "Language in Urban Diversity"
