Bhanu Kapil has new work [Charnel Ground, Crystal Body: Instructions] coming out in the Bay Area journal Mission At Tenth, published by the California Institute of Integral Studies.
Next week, she will be giving a panel talk on feminist and cultural actions following the December gang rape in India as part of a symposium on Gender and Time at Pratt Institute in New York. She will also be reading from Ban — a mapping of the female body and riot — and participating in a Q/A with creative writing and architecture students.
Bhanu also recently spoke to a fiction class at Old Dominion University about the research process of writing her third book, humanimal [a project for future children].
In New York, Bhanu will also be giving a butcher’s block performance of Ban as part of the Rose Garden reading series in Fort Greene.
Notes and materials tracking the Territory symposium, recently held at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics appear on her blog:
