Nagae Yūki Poetry Reading

Join East Asian Languages & Cultures in welcoming award-winning performance poet Nagae Yūki for a multi-media reading in Japanese and English with Q&A to follow.

Nagae Yūki (永方佑樹) received the 2012 Poetry and Thought Newcomer’s Award, and her 2019 poetry collection, Absentee Cities (Fuzai toshi) was awarded the Rekitei Prize in Japan. As a performance-poet, her work is at the frontier of a new cross-disciplinary way of approaching poetic practice, deconstructing lived and social environments and reconstructing them using technology. She is a lecturer at Nagoya University of the Arts and is currently participating in the International Writing Program (IWP) at the University of Iowa, funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, U.S. Department of State.
